Overview:

Fondation Segré is committed to help protect the biodiversity of our planet through the active conservation of threatened species and their habitat and the restoration of degraded ecosystems.

About Fondation Segré

Fondation Segré was established in 1996, initially with a very broad scope: to promote humanitarian, scientific, educational, artistic and environmental projects. For the first ten years, we committed funds in each of these fields. However, acting as a simple donor did not give us the feeling of having a real impact. For this, we had to narrow our areas of interest and select specific projects in which we could play an active, decisive role.

Conservation of nature and of biodiversity emerged as the predominant interest. Our focus is the protection of species, which are the building blocks of nature, and their habitats.

Our Mission

Fondation Segré is committed to help protect the biodiversity of our planet through the active conservation of threatened species and their habitat and the restoration of degraded ecosystems.

Our strategic priorities

Fondation Segré will pursue its mission through the following strategic priorities:

  • Favour the long term viability of wild populations and control factors affecting their decline.
  • Support all efforts to maintain, restore and protect critical habitats and functional ecosystems.
  • Support captive breeding of endangered species and their reintroduction into the wild.
  • Foster the sustainable use of renewable natural resources, notably forests, water, rangelands.
  • Improve the efficacy and implementation of national and international legislation on biodiversity conservation, taking into account stakeholders.
  • Support educational activities, in particular specialized training of technical staff.
  • Cooperate with the relevant regulatory and enforcement institutions to prevent and mitigate the impact of illegal hunting and trading of wildlife.
