Seal harvest

La semaine verte features news reports, portraits or topical issues in the fields of agriculture, food, forestry, fisheries, wildlife management and the environment. It closely follows the news of the rural world, but is aimed at all those who are interested in the quality of what we eat, by protecting the environment and by managing our renewable resources.

Season 51 – La semaine verte:
