« Enter into the heart of Europe’s largest aviary, which covers nearly 2 hectares! »
Countless South American species
The Great South American Aviary was designed to be a truly original walk, unfolding in all its majesty during your visit. At the end of a covered passage, you will come out onto a snaking main walkway. From here, you can take a series of rope bridges that lead to different kiosks. So, while you take a stroll between ‘heaven and earth’, you will get an amazing feeling of flying over South America! Just look to the skies to marvel at multi-coloured birds in flight, or look down to easily spot mammals on the ground below you.

The Caribbean flamingos, a colourful bunch!
The group of Caribbean flamingos housed at the ZooParc takes up residence in the magnificent space of the Great Aviary. These birds live in a large pool that can be admired from the walkway. With ruby reds, reddish pinks, and pinkish whites… the Caribbean flamingo’s plumage is so distinctive it can be seen from afar. It is possible to observe them feeding, performing courtship displays, or standing on one leg whilst sleeping with their heads under their wings… and maybe also to hear them! Flamingos vocalise a lot to communicate and to identify their young…
A major project
Looking back at an immense undertaking… The Great South American Aviary will give visitors a spectacular immersive experience and is the result of a grandiose project. With its South American atmosphere, variety of species, and birds in flight… this new habitat will give you a new view of the animals during your visit, as you will be overlooking the space whilst you walk around. This successful project also pays tribute to Françoise Delord, founder of the ZooParc and lover of birds!
Beauval Nature supports the anteaters’ programme in Brazil
Initiated by the WACI (Wild Animal Conservation Institute) in Brazil, this programme aims to monitor the protection measures put in place for giant anteaters and to better understand their behaviour, especially on roads and highways. These animals are the victims of many fatal accidents. Since 2010, the number of giant anteaters in Brazil has decreased by more than 30%. Beauval Nature has supported this programme 'Anteaters & Highways’ initiated by Arnaud Desbiez, founder of WACI, since 2009.
