Visit Naturoptère, France

Today there is much talk of "biodiversity" and how necessary it is to protect the natural resources of the planet. Here at Naturoptère you can see, experience and learn about these resources.

The Naturoptère offers a direct approach, designed to enable everyone to experience the world of nature and insects.

With interactive exhibits and the chance to observe living species, the use of new technologies and themed areas, and also conference rooms and teaching rooms this is a place created to allow the world to be discovered from many different perspectives.

At Sérignan-du-Comtat, the chosen destination of the famous naturalist Jean-Henri Fabre, the Naturoptère is a unique place that is dedicated to the observation and knowledge of insects, plants and their environment.

Three permanent exhibitions consider a variety of topics, while a changing exhibition will show a plant / insect relationship and art exhibitions will also be presented.

Live insects in exhibitions and selected plants in a garden that is being built: this is the promise of this 1 000m2 building that has been built with a focus on environmental quality and bringing together the aesthetic and the useful, the ecological with the water cycle. We also incorporate a 'green' roof and careful orientation of openings...the Naturoptère is a pilot project for sustainable development.
