« Quiver before the impressive felines! »
Enter the territory of the big cats
Discover Beauval’s majestic big cats along the wooded pathways of this historic part of the ZooParc! Sumatran tigers, Persian leopards, servals, cougars, jaguars, and white tigers parade before your very eyes, behind gigantic viewing windows that allow you to dive into their territory.
The territory’s star animals
The smallest tiger of them all… but the most threatened.
This subspecies of tiger is the last still living on the islands of Indonesia. Weighing 140 kilos and measuring 220 cm long, it is difficult to imagine that it is the smallest representative of its species. Its size does not stop it from attacking some truly imposing prey, such as elephants!

The relocation of the African lions
Last call for the big cats travelling to… the Land of the Lions!
In 2017, our family of African lions, previously housed in the Big Cat Woodlands territory, set foot in their new space for the first time. Waving goodbye to a truly historic part of the park, they headed for a new territory that had been completely redesigned to meet their needs.
« Doesn’t feel like a zoo, more viewing animals in their habitats. Amazing cat families; white tigers, jaguars, leopards and new to 2018: Cheetahs. »

Beauval Nature supports the protection of jaguars
The jaguar is threatened by habitat loss linked with deforestation. It is also a victim of local livestock farmers who, in order to protect their herds, will readily shoot jaguars.
The 'Jaguar of Iguaçu’ project plans to equip several adult jaguars with GPS collars. This will allow light to be shed on the movements of these individuals and their use of the habitat, enabling the vital territory of the species to be determined. The project is also conducting a study on the impact of ecotourism on the species as well as an educational programme to change the attitudes of the local population.
Do your part for conservation!
Sponsor an animal!
Becoming an animal sponsor allows you to form a strong relationship with your favourite animal whilst financing the conservation programmes supported by the Beauval Nature association. All money paid is allocated in full to the association and is then invested into one of the many species conservation programmes it supports around the world.
