Hilly lands that men have shaped through gathering, breeding and farming for more than 4,000 years. The exceptional character of the humanized sites of the Causses and the Cévennes, this particular balance between man and nature, the concern to combine protection and development, have earned this space its integration into the world network of UNESCO biosphere reserves. since 1985.

Mont Lozère, part of the site, is one of the last places where summer transhumance is still practiced.
