Known for its sumptuous colours and acrobatic aerodynamics, the Agrion Bleu is a dragonfly that plays an important role in the ecosystem. Very sensitive to the quality of water, it proves how healthy and natural the environment is. Once threatened with extinction, it has become the symbol of a new-found biodiversity and is a protected species in the Loire Valley.
