A Rocha Switzerland

A Rocha Switzerland studies and conserves threatened ecosystems, especially dry grasslands. Our first research project was an inventory of dry meadows and pastures in the Oak Woods of Genolier in 2009. Since then we have made species inventories in many parts of Switzerland to help identify conservation priorities and advise on land management. Each year we mobilize over a dozen groups of volunteers who undertake practical tasks to maintain or improve the wildlife diversity of meadows. University-level trainees help our own biologist with scientific monitoring to assess the impact of these interventions.

Our environmental education activities reach several hundred people each year. These include camps for children and teenagers (in partnership with other organizations) and a portable ‘eco-parable’ exhibition used at various environmental and Christian events. We also present the biblical foundations for protecting creation through visits to parishes and Christian communities in western Switzerland.

A Rocha Switzerland was founded in 2007.
