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
MERCI project - Invasive alien reptiles
The MERCI project aims to complete scientific knowledge about several species of invasive exotic reptiles: geckos, anole lizards, turtles and iguanas. It also aims to implement concrete actions for the monitoring of these species and their management in the field, and to develop preventive measures.
The MERCI project is co-financed by the INTERREG Caribbean program under the European Regional Development Fund.
REVPOL project - Revegetation for pollinators
The REVPOL project aims to improve revegetation strategies in urban and peri-urban areas (green spaces, gardens, wasteland) in the French West Indies. Data will be collected on the importance of different plants for pollinators (bats, nectarivorous birds and butterflies).
The REVPOL project is carried out with the financial support of the European Union – NextGeneration EU, France Relance and the Office Français de la Biodiversité, in partership with the cities of Pointe-à-Pitre and Lamentin.
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 benefits from the financial support of the Fédération des Chasseurs de Guadeloupe and the DEAL.
PROSPOVERG project - Monitoring wildlife in a dry forest
The aim of the PROSPOVERG project was to identify the diversity of bird and mammal populations in a dry forest of Guadeloupe while training students in wildlife monitoring methods. The PROSPOVERG project was funded by the Office Français de la Biodiversité.
Development of educational resources and tools adapted to the Caribbean context for teaching biodiversity in middle and high school
The project has enabled the creation of life science teaching booklets for middle and high school students, based on the official curriculum and illustrated with examples from the biodiversity of the Caribbean.
Training in environmental diplomacy
Young Caribbean diplomats have benefited from comprehensive training to better understand the geopolitical issues related to biodiversity and better promote their country's interests in the field of the environment. This training was created thanks to a partnership with the National Museum of Natural History in Paris.
