Bonneval-sur-Arc (The French Alps): In the up to 60 degree steep meadows, the work of haymaking is not much different from 100 years ago. If a thunderstorm threatens, the work has to go even faster!

The maintenance and new management of mountain meadows represents an invaluable contribution to the preservation of cultural assets and biodiversity. Lean mountain meadows are among the most species-rich, but now unfortunately also among the most endangered habitats.
