During the biodiversity day, the Department via Hérault Nature, Coopère 34 and the Sauvegarde Hérault Littoral association delegated their speakers to Orpellières beach, near the mouth of the Orb river. “This place, in the municipality most locally committed to biodiversity, presents many advantages for developing our actions”, specifies Yann Geshors, coordinator of the operation. Around the sea line, a veritable food pantry for wildlife, driftwood stabilizing sand and shells, used as niches by insects, there was no shortage of subjects to illustrate the richness of nature. Beach regulars were surprised to discover this hidden biodiversity that they often encounter without knowing it.

“It is an opportunity to recall the existential links that we maintain with other living beings in our environment”explained a speaker to young people who had come after a sailing course, curious and seduced by the diversity of life in all its forms. “The message to take action to halt and reverse biodiversity loss is well received”says Ines, a history student and eco-tourism enthusiast who devotes her free time to associations.

From June 15, the Sauvegarde Hérault Littoral association resumes its seaside walks in search of possible traces of loggerhead turtles that have come to lay their eggs on the beaches. To this end, it needs volunteers. Info on 07 68 98 49 34.
