The discussion focused on the Crau plain, its grazing activity and its biodiversity. This was followed by a presentation of the Crau Plain Grasshopper and the LIFE project, and a time for reflection in small groups on future collaboration with the shepherds. Pastoral practices in the coussoul, the involvement of shepherds in the observation of birds linked to their sheepflocks, as well as their role in the elaboration of educational activities were discussed in detail.

A moment rich in mutual learning! Thank you to Frédéric Laurent, who was in charge of the training, for this initiative!
