Title of the project

Hedge network for wildlife in the Loiret


The Loiret Hunters’ Federation has been involved since 1991 in setting up tools and financial resources to preserve and replant hedges for wildlife and environmental purposes. To date, more than 250 hedge agreements have been signed between the federation and local hunting societies. The Federation was also directly involved in the ecological compensation program for the A19 motorway, by implementing 16 km of hedges.
