This exhibition retraces 30 years of LIFE projects in which the CEN PACA has participated in the region. Presented for the first time during the Fête de la Science in 2022, at the Science Village in the old port of Marseille, this exhibition, full of images and reliefs, was an opportunity to inform and raise awareness among the public about the richness of our regional biodiversity, but also about the Crau Cricket.

During three days, various volunteers, employees and administrators were mobilised to discover the different species and natural environments that have benefited from the European LIFE conservation programme.

On Sunday, Lisbeth Zechner, LIFE SOS Crau Grasshopper project manager, gave a talk on this particular insect to the public who had come to the Science Village. The curious could ask all their questions live to our professional of the Crau Plain Grasshopper.

  • In total, nearly 50 pupils were made aware of the issue on Friday 14 October, and more than 200 people attended throughout the weekend! This was a great success for the CEN PACA team, who worked hard on this exhibition.
    Many young people were able to leave with a souvenir of the Crau Plain Grasshopper and some knowledge of this particular species: badges, stickers, caps, games, were distributed to mark the public.

A big thank you to Elodie, Françoise, Emeline, Marine, and Guislaine for their help as volunteers on these days. Thanks also to the two administrators of the Conservatoire d’espaces naturels, Marc and Jean-Claude, who came to lend a hand to the salaried team.

  • For those who missed it, our exhibition “30 years of LIFE projects” is available until January 2023 at the Ecomusée de la Crau
