Terre Blanche welcomes three new residents!
On 27 June 2022, a hoopoe and a pair of squirrels moved to Terre Blanche after being taken in and raised by the CSAM (Centre de Soin de la Faune Sauvage des Alpes Maritimes) located in Saint-Cézaire-Sur-Siagne.
A true haven of peace for the local wildlife, Terre Blanche is a natural sanctuary, far from any form of degradation and predation generated by human activities.
Indeed, cities and concrete areas encourage competition between peaceful species, reinforcing the reduction of natural resources, like this little hoopoe attacked and seriously injured by magpies in Fréjus; or our two little squirrels, victims of pruning that left them without a nest from a very young age.
This is unfortunately the daily life of hundreds, even thousands of wild animals every day.
Luckily, our three little survivors were taken in by kind souls and taken care of in time by the CSAM.
Cared for, pampered and well-fed, they are now ready to regain their freedom in the Terre Blanche resort, a secure and perfectly preserved area.
Terre Blanche, a partner of the PACA pour Demain association, is a paragon of respect for nature. Under the close supervision of our Biodiversity Brigade, the 300-hectare resort has become a huge natural refuge for both fauna and local flora. So much so that a number of rare endemic plants and animals thrive there in complete peace!
Like one of our feathered mascots, the dark pheasant, who escaped from a hunting trip, our three new protégés will finally be able to turn the page and start a new chapter in their lives and, we are sure, will live happily in their new environment.
