Some of our actions are part of programs of research, education and awareness for which we collaborate with local and international partners. For these projects, we benefit from the financial support of various entities.

Projects in progress

ESPACYPA project - Monitoring bird species of hunting and heritage interest

The objective of the project is to acquire a better knowledge of the game bird species of the French West Indies for appropriate management.

This project is financially supported by the Fédération Départementale des Chasseurs de Guadeloupe and the DEAL Guadeloupe (via the Plan France Relance) in Guadeloupe, and the Fédération Départementale des Chasseurs de Martinique and the DEAL Martinique in Martinique.

DEVIMTOR project - Demography and diet of exotic freshwater turtles

The aim of the project is to study three species of invasive freshwater turtles in Guadeloupe and Martinique: the African slider (Pelusios castaneus), the Antillean slider (Trachemys stejnegeri) and the Yellow-bellied slider turtle (Trachemys scripta).

This project is being carried out with the financial support of the Office français de la biodiversité (OFB).

Completed projects

MERCI project - Invasive alien reptiles

The project aimed to complete scientific knowledge about several species of invasive exotic reptiles, to implement concrete actions for their monitoring and management in the field, and to develop preventive measures. The MERCI project was co-financed by the INTERREG Caribbean program under the European Regional Development Fund.
