IN FROM THE WILD
More than 130 individuals of various species live on a vast reserve near Avignon, southern France. They were rescued all across Europe. Some were found injured by the roadside, others were sent by parks that could not take care of them.
Much of the wildlife in this place of safety is orphaned. Now, for the first time, a crew has been allowed to enter the reserve to discover the secrets of its special world where very close bonds are formed between humans and animals.
The residents regularly feature in movies, including Jacques Perrin’s The Seasons, Luc Jacquet’s The Fox and the Child and Fred Fougea’s Wild France. They are cared for by an extraordinary woman whose skills are recognized internationally.
Even the BBC has called on her unique expertise. She has a true gift for raising wild animals in total compliance with their instincts and natural needs.
