Plants are at the heart of life and are our most important battle. Far from being inexhaustible, biodiversity is increasingly under threat with every passing day.

While Jacques Rocher deliberately seeks to sound the alarm with this statement, he is also confident that our willingness to take action will prevail. With our Plants & Biodiversity programme, we have grasped the urgency of the situation and have focused our energy on the fight to sustain a world under threat: biodiversity. This commitment is essential to the balance of all living things, human or otherwise.
Our duty is to defend biodiversity.

Our Plants & Biodiversity programme is focused on three key areas: knowledge, preservation and awareness. Three key steps to protect all living things.
Our commitment takes the form of sponsorships granted to the botanists, researchers and scientists who are leading the way with their efforts on the ground.

KNOWLEDGE

A window on the beauty

of nature

 

 

Supporting scientific missions to study wildlife in remote areas, helping to publish the books of plant experts, accompanying the meticulous work of renowned primatologists in Africa or Madagascar: our curiosity is what drives our involvement. But it is also essential, because in order to protect biodiversity, we have a duty to find out all we can about it.

PRESERVATION

Committed to the future

Preservation means taking action before it is too late. The situation is already urgent, so we are summoning our resources and experts to restore bruised lands and endangered species: on the island of Ouessant,for example, we are working to preserve wild pollinators. In this case and in many others, we are striving to preserve the fragile beauty of nature while we still can.

AWARENESS

Rousing the senses
and consciences

 

 

Sharing and transmitting is a duty. Whether on the ground or in the classroom, with students and teachers alike, we endorse the dissemination of knowledge and trips in the natural world to accompany our future guardians of environmental protection.
