CARING FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

To bring our own actions into line with the message we give to our visitors, we have made some changes to our internal policies to limit our impact on the planet.

Reducing waste

Composting plant waste, selective sorting, a collection point for mobile phones and printer cartridges, using biodegradable disposable crockery in the café, printing documents on printers with the Imprim’vert eco-label…

Reducing energy consumption

Using electric vehicles and bicycles, reducing the number of appliances left on standby, prioritising local suppliers…

Ecofaune

In addition, our zoo is working hard to protect wildlife through its charity Ecofaune, created to support programmes protecting animals in their natural habitat.


A “Refuge LPO ©” commitment for local biodiversity!

We are happy to be classified “Refuge LPO ©” since 2020. This is a recognition of the actions carried out for a long time in favor of local biodiversity: non-use of chemicals for the management of green spaces, installation of nest boxes, installation of hives and insects hotels…
A 5-year action plan has been put in place to increase our potential for welcoming local wildlife!
More information on “LPO Huts” here (in French).
Please note: an LPO refuge is not a Rescue center! If you find an animal in distress, contact the Regional Wildlife Conservation Center of Buoux (in French) !

Recycle your mobile phones… Bring them to the zoo!

The zoo collects your old mobile phones (with battery), and recycles them. This means new phones can be manufactured without taking raw materials from the natural environment. In addition, for each phone recycled, the collection company makes a donation to Ecofaune, our charity that finances animal protection programmes!
