Faced with the current fire emergency in southwestern France, YouCare and the 1% For Animals Label have decided to launch a major project to ensure the sustainability of our forests and terrestrial biodiversity. Together we will create the first YouCare Charity Incubator.
With this nursery, our goal is to produce more than 50 000 trees per yearand then to deploy them as quickly as possible in the other regions of France. Our nurseries will multiply more than 20 species of trees in order to avoid any problems related to monoculture. In addition, we will plant numerous species of bushes and melliferous plants allowing the reintroduction of small mammals and bees.
To help financially this operation:

On this occasion, we visited the Refuge Les 3 Dindes, with whom we regularly collaborate during animal rescues. In possession of unoccupied land, the president of the 3 Turkeys offers to make available to us free of charge thespace required for the creation of our pilot nursery.
