Two reptiles rescued by Beauval

Survivors re-homed at the ZooParc!

Along with the conservation of species, animal welfare is one of Beauval’s main concerns. Thus, when the case arises, the park does everything possible to act as a refuge for animals whose living conditions are not suitable. This was the case for two reptiles that we rescued recently.

Beauval Nature helps tequila splitfin fish in Mexico

Central Mexico is experiencing rapid deterioration of its waterways, mainly as a result of agricultural pollution linked to the use of pesticides. This deterioration has already led to the extinction of several species, including the tequila splitfin fish. 

The Fish Ark Project, established in 1998, has allowed many highly endangered freshwater fish species to be bred and maintained in captivity. In addition, an educational programme for local communities has been set up to increase awareness about the importance of conserving natural wetlands in which endemic species live.
