France Valley is committed to protecting and encouraging plant and animal biodiversity
Natura 2000 is a European approach aimed at preserving biodiversity, both animal and plant. As part of a campaign of ornithological inventories, France Valley very naturally agreed to make available two forests located in Eure-et-Loir, namely La Saucelle and Bois Saint-Germain.
At the end of this study, 50 bird species were inventoried in the first forest, including 36 species protected at national level, three endangered species in mainland France, two endangered in the Centre region and four species of community interest. In the Bois de Saint-Germain, 37 species were inventoried, including 27 protected at a national level. In particular, the study highlights the presence of the common bullfinch, a vulnerable and declining species. By pursuing sustainable forest management based on very strict specifications, France Valley is committed to protecting and encouraging plant and animal biodiversity within the 28,000 hectares managed.
