Partners in the project


Cofunding partners


European Commission (LIFE+ Nature programme):




Agence de l’Eau Rhin-Meuse :

The Rhine-Meuse Water Authority is a public body that reports to the Ministry responsible for sustainable development. It implements the objectives and provisions of the Water Development and Management Master Plan (SDAGE) by promoting the balanced, economical management of water resources and aquatic habitats, the drinking water supply, flood regulation and the sustainable development of business endeavours. Through the revenues generated by the water bills that it draws up and collects regarding water use, it provides financial support to public and private projects which are the most effective in terms of achieving good water condition.

Département du Bas-Rhin :



Région Alsace :

A humid area of international importance, the site on the Upper Rhine was awarded the Ramsar label on 5 September 2008. Ramsar sites are humid areas with remarkable heritage qualities on the world stage for fauna, flora and landscapes. The Rhine Valley is also listed within the Natura 2000 perimeter. In this context and despite the far-reaching changes undertaken by man over the last two hundred years, these habitats are now undergoing major rehabilitation by local players.

Region Alsace has been deeply committed to this policy for several years, conducting the Living Rhine Life programme (2002-2007), the "Redynamisation of the Old Rhine" programme (2009-2012) involving numerous players (Europe, State, local authorities, Water Authority, Universities…) and intended to restore the conditions necessary to the biodiversity of these exceptional habitats. It also oversees the Natura 2000 objectives document for the Rhine-Ried-Bruch site.
In addition, it offers its support to projects sponsored by local authorities committed to this path, as is the case here on Rohrschollen Island.


DREAL Alsace :

DREAL, under the authority of the region's Prefet, carries out assignments dedicated mainly to implementing the Grenelle Environment agreement with the permanent aim of integrating sustainable development issues into it and making environmental data accessible.

The protection and development of natural heritage resources: To protect and develop environmental heritage, DREAL relies on regulatory devices, such as nature reserves, but also, more and more, on the setting up of action programmes negotiated between various partners.

In this way, the project run by the City of Strasbourg falls within the implementation objectives of the Flora, Fauna and Habitat directive by seeking to preserve and restore the habitats of notable species in the Rhine valley but also in the national nature reserves policy which allows the development of innovative projects in the "grandeur of nature" laboratories which these areas represent.
