• Bois Léon and Ginette
• Basse Vallée de la Durdent
• Ferté and Forges-les-Eaux
• Nojals and Clotte

Landowners and –managers from the estates received their WE Label at a press conference in Paris organised by the François Sommer foundation, the National Hunting and Wildlife Agency (ONCFS) and the National Hunting Federation (FNC).

Thierry de l’Escaille, Secretary General of the European Landowners’ Organization, started the press conference by presenting the origin of the label in 2005 and its development. Philippe Dulac, President of the François Sommer Foundation, Alain Durand, Vice-President of the FNC, and Nirmala Séon-Massin, Deputy Director of Research and Expertise at ONCFS, explained individually why their organisations have joined this project .
