At the ZooParc de Beauval, the conservation of animal species is our raison d’être!
For the past 10 years, the Beauval Nature association has joined forces with field workers to support them in their primary mission of species conservation.
Taking action every day to protect tomorrow
With the Beauval Nature association, Beauval works alongside numerous conservation and research programmes around the world to study and protect endangered species. This daily action is to protect our biodiversity.
Beauval Nature has taken on the management of the Help Congo programme!
A conservation programme has recently been entrusted to Beauval Nature: Help Congo has been supporting chimpanzees in the Conkouati-Douli National Park for over 30 years. There are many projects to carry out for both the local teams and those sent on-site by Beauval Nature, including missions to protect the primates, research work, censuses of the local fauna, raising awareness amongst local populations, and more besides. Further recognition of Beauval Nature’s professionalism with regards to the conservation of species!
Reintroduction of gorillas born in Beauval and 1st world birth in a natural environment!
In 2019, Kuimba and Mayombé departed for Gabon to discover life in the wild. An extraordinary trip made possible by the Beauval Nature association!
And in 2021, Mayombé gives birth to a baby, a female called Taàli. It is the first gorilla from two parents born in a zoo and reintroduced. A world first that reinforces hopes in terms of the conservation of this critically endangered species and a magnificent reward for our passion for animals, our energy to ensure their well-being and our tenacity to work for their conservation.
A daily dedication
Zoos are fully engaged in scientific research to understand and better protect ecosystems. At Beauval, we actively participate in research on animal behaviour, its development within an environment, the eating habits of different species, their reproduction, their anatomy, and more.
