"We want to revive a large primary forest in western Europe."
– Francis Hallé
Francis Hallé calls us to find our place in Nature
From the point of view of a botanist and specialist in forests – especially tropical forests – how does all this manifest itself? What is the relationship between human health and biodiversity?
Our association was born out of serendipitous encounters in the summer of 2018 and the multiple connections established during the following months around the necessity of restoring a primary forest in Western Europe.
At the initiative of botanist Francis Hallé, our association works towards the creation of a vast natural zone on a European scale – about 70,000 hectares (172,974 acres)
I was born on April 15, 1938 in Seine-Port (77), France, and studied at La Sorbonne University in Paris. I have two scientific specializations: the ecology of tropical forests and the architecture of their trees.
