Created by the consuming passion of a woman, Beauval is the history of a life entirely dedicated to the animals and their preservation.

The story of a life

35 years ago, the small ornithological park of Beauval was created in the heart of the french region of Loir-et-Cher. Over the years, green plains, tropical hothouses, panoramic pools and artificial islands came to enlarge the place, still occupied by some species from various origins. Fulfilling a dream, Françoise Delord constructed one of the most beautiful zoological park of the world, sheltering almost 8000 animals in some remarkable facilities. In this way was created a zoo, where the animals are above all else home.
