For over 20 years, CREA Mont-Blanc has been combining high quality ecological research with communication and education initiatives. CREA Mont-Blanc is a pioneer and leader of citizen science in France and maintains a strong commitment to participatory science, aiming not only to encourage the understanding of ecology, but also to directly involve the public in innovative scientific research.
