Restoring Native Flora

The progressive reforestation of the Citadel is now one of the association’s flagship activities, alongside projects to restore historic heritage, including the Martello Tower at La Preneuse and the Jewish Refugee Memorial at Saint Martin.


In the 18th century, when the Fort was built, the vegetation was removed so that, perched on the Fort, the English soldiers had a clear vision of any potential threats, explains Erwin Amavassee, Project Coordinator.The goal is to plant, according to a well-designed conservation action plan, about 1,300 endemic and indigenous plants, explains the coordinator of the project. For this, any volunteers are welcome!
