Wold Summit for sustainable Development in Johannesburg -
The disappearance of animal and vegetal species is consistent with evolution, but today, because of man related activities, 1 000 to 10 000 times more species are being eliminated than they would be eliminated by Nature alone.But this erosion of life is neither ineluctable nor irreversible. This is why inaction is no longer acceptable.
To face such a vital stake, an association has been created and has decided to act and bring its own response.
On a 9 ha property, located in St-Ay, close to Orléans, the association (as per the 1901 law) gives life and leads a project called Herboretum, a garden of herbs, with a role of an ambassador of biodiversity.
