The bay of Mont Saint Michel deserves special attention. As the abbey on the island is a true work of art made by human hands, the setting in which this is done is an absolute miracle of mother nature. Recently the autorities also recognised that, as the habitat in the bay is unique and endangered because of shortsighted reconstructions in the past decades around Le Mont. With the changing of the river Couesnon, the sanding proces (seabed being flushed with sand) was speeded up and the surroundings of Le Mont Saint Michel was slowly turning into land (polders of green fields). Even now-a-days the islands is an actual island only at the highest tides (once a month). A huge reconstruction of the area will bring the balance back and will result in the restoration of the island status of Le Mont Saint Michel.
