La Vallee de Ferney

Nested within Bambou Mountains, La Vallee de Ferney is a nature reserve of 200 hectares which tends to preserve the native forest of Mauritius. With its unique biodiversity, the forest is a shelter for more than 100 plant species, and numerous animals, including vertebrate and invertebrate species. Mauritius being the 3rd country in the world to have the highest number of extinct species, La Vallee de Ferney is a natural heritage that needs to be protected and presered for the future generation. La Vallée de Ferney sets out to become a reference for a raising community awareness and providing out-of-classroom educational experience with regards to biodiversity conservation and environmental protection. La Vallée de Ferney Conservation Trust represents a public-private partnership between the Government of Mauritius and CIEL Group that came into existence in 2006. The Trust is dedicated to the restoration and protection of the natural habitats contained within the reserve.
