Sponsors Wanted

Friends of the Environment, a non-governmental organisation, has been working since 2006 to restore the site around the Fort Adelaïde, a.k.a Citadel of Port-Louis. The project is about recreating the ecological landscape of the Citadel for environmental, touristic and cultural purposes.

After  further research works, the non-governmental organisation began planting a native dry forest on 9 hectares around the Citadel Fort, according to Erwin Amavassee, coordinator of this project.
This native forest will also help in mitigating seasonal fires, as it will control an exotic invasive plant that catches fire readily during the dry seasons and more will deliver numerous other ecosystem services. Friends of the Environment is also looking for volunteers and sponsors to continue planting endemic trees on the site.
