Maison des chauves-souris

Arles - Outdoor leisure

La Maison des chauves-souris a été réalisée dans le cadre du programme européen Life+ Chiro Med coordonné par le Syndicat mixte de gestion du Parc naturel régional de Camargue, dans la continuité du Sentier Homme et Nature initié en 2013 avec Marseille-Provence, capitale européenne de la Culture, sous la maîtrise d’ouvrage du Conservatoire du littoral, propriétaire des lieux.

La Maison des chauves-souris a pour double objectif de recréer un gîte aménagé pour répondre aux besoins des colonies de reproduction du Grand Rhinolophe et du Murin à oreilles échancrées, et de proposer un espace muséographique pour le public, parfaitement intégré au projet de sentier Homme et Nature aux Marais du Vigueirat.
Le sentier Homme et Nature a pour objectif la présentation des activités humaines possibles sur un espace naturel protégé en Camargue et l'utilisation des espaces par la faune. En d'autres termes, une approche globale du patrimoine rural en Camargue autour des thématiques suivantes : l'agriculture, la pêche, la riziculture, l'élevage, l'art contemporain, l'écologie et l'écoresponsabilité. Le programme Life+ Chiro Med vise à assurer la conservation et la gestion intégrée de deux espèces de chauve-souris en Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur et en Languedoc-Roussillon : le Grand Rhinolophe et le Murin à oreilles échancrées. Il réunit huit partenaires techniques (dont les Amis des Marais du Vigueirat), cinq partenaires financiers français, onze experts scientifiques, la Commission Européenne, et un bureau externe.
