LIFE Sallina is funded by the European Union (60%), the Loire-Bretagne Water Agency (13%), the Pays-de-la-Loire Region (7%) and the Ministry of Ecological Transition and Solidarity (6%) and by the 5 beneficiaries of the project.
Technical committees have been set up in each of the territories: Guérande and Mès marshes, Île de Noirmoutier marshes and Millac marshes.
Composed of all the local players (salt workers, breeders, communities, environmental protection association, hunters associations, state service, etc.), the technical committees meet at least once a year to monitor the progress of actions, take note of the results of biological monitoring carried out and discuss the directions to be taken.
