Protecting port city biodiversity in Le Havre


There is an increasing attention to protect the local biodiversity of port cities. In previous weeks we have seen the examples Trieste, Seville, Montreal and Quebec. A new project this week comes from France. The Port Authority of Le Havre, HAROPA in cooperation with the Seine-Normandy Water Agency has installed a floating pontoon and artificial marine habitats to recover the local flora and fauna. The new installation will also work as nurseries for fish and support wildlife. The project also includes the ecological monitoring for the next two years.
