Alister and François LOOS, Vice-President of the Alsace Region
Hosted by the Chamber of Agriculture and the Alsace Region, the project partner, ALISTER was present at the Alsace stand for the joy of all attendees. Both little children and adults were able to take pictures of our mascot, while discovering the existence of the European Hamster and stakes linked to its preservation. There are only a handful of people who know that wild hamsters exist in European and that in France, they can only be found in Alsace. This trade faire was also an opportunity to highlight the roles played by farmers in the LIFE ALISTER Project.
