We proposed in this paper a Multi-Place Foraging algorithm called Lévy Walk and Firefly Recruiting Algorithm (LWFR). Unlike, most of the literature works on foraging, our foraging robots forage to maintain the survivability of their nests and collaborate to maintain the survivability of other depots when needed. The Proposed algorithm uses: (1) Lévy Walk to search objects;(2) Firefly algorithm to attract robots in neighborhood. The attraction model inspired by the behavior of Fireflies provides an indirect and costless communication. Numerical simulations show that the proposed algorithm can maintain the survivability of different nests.
