La Fondation France et André Dion

Once again, the Fondation France et André Dion is on a crusade.
In the 80s, with its 450 members, the Société des Ami(e)s du Merlebleu de l'Est de l'Amérique set up more than 10,000 nest boxes in the bluebirds’ paths. And the bluebirds have returned.

Today, there is a new cause for concern:

To help cavity nesting ducks, 500 nest boxes will be set up in the Far North by their active members. 89 nest boxes are already in place. Outfitters, to whom we offer our complimentary birdhouses, receive us with open arms. This activity profits them, in addition to helping our cause for these ducks who need nest cavities.

But as for the Barrow’s Goldeneye, whose story we told in our last book, its cries for help are being heard all over the world. Our goal is to participate in the same work on a global scale.

We are looking for non-profit foundations who care, as we do, about protecting the environment. We have the cause. Do you have the resources? Will you join us?
