A communication by Charles -François Boudouresque, member of the SFJO Scientific Council written jointly with Brigitte Berland, Jean-Claude Cheinet, Christian Pellicani and Michèle Perret – Boudouresque.
The MNLE created in 1981 has edited a magazine “Naturellement” for 40 years. 40 years of history, observations, struggles, reflections on the protection of the environment in a context of continuous development of various uses. This gives this movement an original position on the political scene. It has had the merit of stating truths that have not always been in the direction of “the ecologists’ right thinking”, but which have always been supported by the scientific and technical knowledge of the time.
