Biophysical characterization of l'Anse du Portage and restoration of vulnerable coastal habitats

L’anse-du-Portage in the Municipality of Notre-Dame-du-Portage has been suffering for some years from submersion and coastal erosion. The municipality is currently in the process of revitalizing de l'Anse-du-Portage. The municipality has sought the expertise of the comité ZIP of the Sud-de-l'Estuaire with a view to a redevelopment taking into account coastal risks. The Comité ZIP carried out a characterization and issued recommendations for restorations using mild erosion mitigation techniques. The project aims to conserve biodiversity and meets several principles of the Sustainable Development Act. In addition, the project will offer "schools-banks" in order to put forward the soft techniques. The species used for the restoration are the prairie and smooth cordgrass and as well as the sea lymegrass and the rugosa rose.
