Klorane Botanical Foundation
WHO ARE WE?
The Klorane Botanical Foundation is the company foundation of Laboratoires Pierre FABRE, which acts for the protection and valorisation of botanical heritage. Its creation in 1994 reflects the intention of Mr Pierre Fabre to make a strong commitment to preserving natural species and to allow as many people as possible to share the knowledge acquired in the fields of botany and mycology since the Group was created.
The actions taken by the foundation are based on three objectives :
Protect plant species under threat, in particular through partnerships with conservatoires and botanical gardens, such as the National Botanical Conservatory in Brest or the Conservatoire Botanique Pierre Fabre (Pierre Fabre Botanical Conservatory).
Explore the plant world in order to increase knowledge and research into biodiversity, with financial support from exploration and protection projects throughout the world, and in plant restoration projects, etc.
Educate as many people as possible, and in particular raise awareness in children about the variety and fragility of our botanical heritage, through educational activities, the creation of journals, brochures, guides and posters, the organisation of exhibitions and discovery days focusing on botany and mycology.
The Klorane Botanical Foundation drives these objectives in association with various conservatoires and botanical gardens, drawing on the network of dispensing pharmacists, which is a precious tool in reaching the general public, teachers, students and school pupils. It is ready to listen, in France and abroad, in order to guide project leaders who are conscious of the importance of botanical heritage.
