Opération Canopée, associated with Pro Natura International and Océan Vert, has developed various facilities for access to tropical canopies. All or part of the equipment is used depending on project configurations.
The Canopy Raft
A combination of a semi-rigid bearing structure and a layer of netting in contact with the canopy. This ‘uppercanopy’ installation is accessible to users and placed on the canopy using an aerostat.
