I have visited Brittany many times and had no idea that this was happening. Signed and noted.

Incidentally, translated in to English the note on the postcard reads:

Beach pollution in Breton is due to the high concentration of intensive pig and other animals in the region. This pollution resulting from excess nitrogen from this type of farming is unsustainable, encourages the growth of green algae, with dramatic consequences on the environment, visitors and tourism. Thank you for challenging these forms of intensive farming in the region and giving back their beautiful beaches.

Clearly insufficient protection of the waters was allowed for too long.
