A Belgian federal campaign to make citizens and businesses aware of biodiversity-related issues.
I garden and grow
In my garden or home, I prefer native plant species.
I prevent invasive species from being spread. In this way, I help preserve local species such as earthworms.
I set up my garden to accommodate local fauna: I plan wild land areas and plant flowers for bees, I leave dead branches, I prefer natural hedgerows rather than fences, I vary and diversify plants and tree species, etc.
I contribute to the preservation of habitats even when they are semi-natural. In this way, I help preserve endangered species such as the hedgehog.
I only use natural products to keep pests away (vinegar, etc.) or grow my local flowers (compost, etc.). If I buy plants in nurseries, I make sure they have not been treated with chemicals.
I limit the pollution of ecosystems, especially agricultural ecosystems, by chemicals. In this way, I contribute to preserving pollinators and birds in our countryside.
I count birds, butterflies and other species visiting my garden.
I communicate the results of this bird census to conservation associations such as Natagora. In this way, I contribute to the knowledge of biodiversity and its status. Knowing biodiversity is essential to protecting it.
I find lots of other ideas to preserve biodiversity and share my experience with those around me.
I visit www.1001pourlabiodiversite.be to find lots of smart tips. In this way, I participate in preserving biodiversity.
