“Whether in the form of documentaries, paintings or writings, the work of the Benoit family presents a saving nature, the only past and only future of humanity; a plea for an urgent reconciliation between man and the wild world.”

Gabriel Leblanc

Mission

Art to move, Science to understand and Nature to survive! Founded in June 2008 by the Benoit family and many of its collaborators, the Society of Art and Science for Nature (SAS Nature) has a mandate to make the public aware of the conservation of natural habitats and wildlife protection, especially with regard to predators such as the wolf. As its name suggests, this non-profit organization uses art and science as educational tools, mainly through the work of Monique, Gisèle and Raynald Benoit, well-known figures in the fields of wildlife art and nature documentaries.

Actions

SAS Nature specializes in the production and dissemination of projects aimed at raising awareness among the general public about the unsung and fascinating aspects of wildlife, plants or animals. SAS Nature manages the Monique and Gisèle Benoit Centre, where it produces thematic exhibitions and organizes talks as well as meetings between its visitors and artists. The centre regularly hosts school groups. SAS Nature has published the beautiful art book FRISSON SACRÉ du monde sauvage. It has also published two memoirs and co-produced the recent documentary by Gisèle Benoit entitled LYNX, GUARDIAN OF FORGOTTEN SECRETS.

Projects

SAS Nature is currently developing educational programs that will use state-of-the-art technologies and link the educational offerings of the Monique and Gisèle Benoit Centre to the content of GB.TV. It also supports the important web-series project on the Wolf piloted by the Benoit family.

Boréalie en péril

Gisèle Benoit dresse le portrait inquiétant de certaines portions de la forêt boréale canadienne, notamment celle du Nord de l’Ontario où elle a dirigé, jusqu’en mai 2014, un centre d’étude du comportement de la faune. À lire pour en apprendre davantage sur l’usage d’herbicides controversés en foresterie.

Le regard de Léo

Amoureux des félins et passionné par l’histoire, Berthier Plante a été touché par la beauté et le mystère qui se dégagent de l’œuvre Un matin de givre – Lynx du Canada de Gisèle Benoit, qu’il qualifie de Notre Athénaïs de la faune sauvage.

Promenons-nous dans les bois…

Les rapports entre l’homme et le loup gris sont depuis longtemps marqués par l’ignorance, la peur et la rivalité. Ce document-choc de Berthier Plante, grand amateur d’histoire, nous fait prendre conscience de la bêtise humaine et du destin cruel du loup, l’ancêtre du chien, pourtant le meilleur ami de l’homme.

En passant par les épinettes…

L’auteur Berthier Plante propose au lecteur un voyage fascinant dans l’univers des instruments de musique produits avec des arbres indigènes du Canada.
