To reach its sustainable development goals and with the aim to save resources and protect wildlife, BARJANE implemented a “shelter” on the green areas of Breguières Industrial Park with the LPO help (French Association for Birds protection).

The LPO association has promoted the LPO Shelter Program to encourage private and public lands owners to use environmental techniques to maintain and protect green spaces.

BARJANE team was really motivated by the project and Bréguières Park was the perfect place to implement such a program: with more than 20 hectares of green spaces, an alternative treatment for rainwaters allowing the creation of natural ponds, and an ISO 14001 certification since 2009, the park has a real wildlife hosting potential.

After one year of inventory research by the LPO local teams, 113 different species have been found: most of them are common species but essential for ecosystems balance; few of them are protected species like the amphibian Vole or the red-rumped Swallow. After this identification work, the LPO association recommended management and development actions to improve wildlife habitat in Bréguières business park. All these actions are part of the new sustainable plan that BARJANE has put in place for the next 3 years.

Thanks to all the persons involved in the project!
