Our commitment to biodiversity

The preservation of animal biodiversity is also one of the core issue with the disappearance of the plane trees. The cavities dug in the trunks of the old plane trees sheltered many protected species from the Small Duke Owl  to the spotted flycatcher and including the bats. 

To compensate for the disappearance of their habitat, a large installation of nesting boxes and bat houses is being conducted simultaneously with the replanting operation. VNF has surrounded itself with the best specialists to create perfectly adapted habitats for different species and to monitor their effectiveness once installed.

Your donation also allows to relocate the birds and keep the present protected species on the canal. Up to date, 410 nesting boxes have been installed in 2017, bringing their total numbers to 890 nesting boxes installed since 2006.
