DIRECT. Journey to the Florida bayous or the tundra from the Perche rainforest

Assembly with Gaël Renaudin, tour information on the Perche Forest Vacationer Workplace. Captivated with Botany, entomology and geology from an early age, he’s additionally very concerned in varied associations for the safety of nature.

For this lover of the setting, it is very important share his data with most people with a view to protect these pure environments such because the humid forest of mossy! A spot that he likes so much…

This website is completely atypical and once you look intently, it permits us to journey within the bayous of Florida and even within the Tundra and the Siberian Taiga.

This rainforest, as its title suggests, is a wetland that have to be preserved! “These pure environments have turn into significantly uncommon in France over the many years”.

Certainly, the drying up, specifically of the massive marshes of western France linked to their cultivation, the transformation of some into poplar plantations, eutrophication on account of human exercise and even the transformation right into a pond led to the disappearance of this kind of setting. Gaël Renaudin additionally evokes international warming and water air pollution: “It’s regrettable that we didn’t notice, some thirty years in the past, that we had been degrading actual little havens of biodiversity”.

Fortuitously, sure procedures have been ratified by nearly all nations, specifically the RAMSAR Conference in 1971 with its implementation in 1975! Nevertheless it protected the world’s nice wetlands with out worrying in regards to the smaller ones…

Since then, issues have advanced for the reason that institution of Natura 2000 managed by way of territory by the Regional Pure Park of Perche and the coverage of ENS (Delicate Pure Areas) created by the Departmental Council of Eure-et-Loir intention largely to protect the positioning.

And its preservation is a necessity: “it’s on the one hand an actual small water tower, the land is hydromorphic and the presence of sphagnum moss taking part in a job of sponge permits each to have unpolluted water and contributes in summer season to revive it and alternatively it’s an plain biodiversity reserve”.

“Posing the issue of worldwide warming solely on the size of France or Europe isn’t sufficient. Similar to imposing on French and Europeans legal guidelines that aren’t and won’t be utilized by nations just like the States United, Brazil, China, Russia… would ask them for an effort As a result of they did in useless!”

We will need to have a message addressed to most people but in addition to highschool college students so that everybody realizes that immediately there’s a have to take all vital and pressing measures to counterbalance the consequences of worldwide warming. already properly underway…

For Gaël, we will nonetheless counterbalance international warming, however on one situation: that each one nations take the time to work collectively on these options and above all that each one nations have the identical stage of laws to keep away from a predicted disaster. . For him, who surveys this website every day, the evolution of the humid forest, like all of those environments, is an ideal indicator of local weather change.

“We’ve got the indicator, it’s now as much as us to make sure that this indicator, tomorrow is reversed in comparison with what we’re experiencing immediately. The final warmth waves that we now have simply skilled are solely the start of a lot higher results. pernicious of which we now have had solely a glimpse thus far.”

It’s subsequently essential to protect these environments, particularly for the reason that property of this ecosystem are quite a few… From a purely naturalistic viewpoint. “We’ve got on the one hand an space which might be thought-about a moorland zone the place we discover species reminiscent of calluna vulgaris, four-cornered heather, eagle fern after which a transition zone in direction of the wetland that are species reminiscent of birch, aspen, molinia and sphagnum and willow”.

But additionally the sluggish decomposition of crops, as a result of acidity of the positioning additionally contributes to the creation of peat.

Furthermore, the digital non-intervention of man permits the timber to develop with most range and after they die it’s a procession of bugs that decomposes them and their presence can be an asset! It permits the replica of a lot of birds such because the black woodpecker, the good noticed woodpecker, the inexperienced woodpecker and the grey woodpecker. The latter being an unusual fowl which partly explains the classification of the positioning as a Natura 2000 Zone.

Know that among the many protected species you too can come throughout:

  • The viviparous lizard,
  • the adder,
  • All batrachians such because the agile frog,
  • salamander,
  • The alpine newt,
  • birds, the tawny owl, the black woodpecker, the grey woodpecker, the good noticed woodpecker.

And for the fauna and specifically the mammals you may have the everyday species of the forest massifs of its latitudes:

  • Deer,
  • Stag,
  • Wild boar,
  • Fox,
  • Squirrel,
  • Marten.

A selected point out ought to be made regarding bats which all have the standing of protected species. The presence of cavities within the timber, a big inhabitants of bugs permits these small mammals to develop there.

So if you wish to get misplaced and observe all this lovely biodiversity, a 1km loop circuit is obtainable to guests. A big a part of the circuit takes place on footbridges (pontoons) above the water in winter and spring.

Do not forget to placed on good footwear, you will need to present boots in spring and winter as a result of the water ranges may be significantly excessive.
