Conservation

Beauval Nature reports… from Bali

We go to North Bali in Indonesia to meet Gatot and Emilia, who are committed to the replanting of corals and mangroves. These ecosystems, which are home to an abundance of biodiversity, are threatened!

Reintroduction of gorillas

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.

Reintroduction of Javan langurs

Reintroduction of Javan langurs

Research

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.
