Sept îles Islands are seven small islands and a set of rock formations that emerge between island and island. The islands are Bono Île, Île Le Cerf Plate, Île aux Moines, Île Le Cerf Malba, Rouzicîle, Île Le Cerf and Île Costans. All the islands are uninhabited and protected except one that has a research centre. This place is the habitat and place of passage of different birds.
In the Île de Rouzic inhabits a large colony of gannets (300.000 birds), which makes the sky surrounding the island a show full of life. The gannet lives only in Europe, in this island and in other one in front of Ireland coast.
In Sept Îles islands lives a grey seal family, who settled here because of the large amount of food that provide their water. Although it is not usual latitude for seals, this family goes here all year.
The Puffin is one of the inhabitants of these islands and is the most colourful of them all. The bird has the beak of various colours and has become a symbol and attractiveness of the region.
