An architectural feat for a place unlike any other in the world.

The Equatorial Dome is a veritable giant terrarium and has been designed to make the most of the layout of the site (climate, topography, etc.) ensuring that it operates with a low-energy requirement.

This exceptional monument is almost alive! The temperature is kept at 26 °C throughout the year, thanks to numerous automated systems that modify ventilation and humidification according to outdoor climatic conditions. The dome breathes, sweats, and gives the animals living within it a tropical climate that is ideal for their well-being.

Beauval Nature supports the Komodo Survival Program

The Komodo Survival Program (KSP) NGO signed a memorandum of agreement with the Indonesian Directorate General of Nature Resources and Ecosystem Conservation in 2007, allowing it to supervise and act towards the protection of the Komodo dragon’s natural habitat

Following the decline of the populations of these monitors due to expansion of human activities, this agreement is a necessity. Beauval Nature is committed to protecting this giant, as terrifying as it is captivating.
