Park

5,700 ANIMALS
Home to 5,700 animals belonging to 600
different species, Beauval covers an area of about
30 hectares and houses the largest collection of
animals in France. It takes a couple of days to
discover all of Beauval’s extraordinary animals,
including white tigers, white lions, manatees, and
okapis. Some of the species housed at Beauval
are found nowhere else in France, such as the
koalas, tree-kangaroos, and of course the giant
pandas!

450 BIRTHS PER YEAR
Approximately 450 baby animals are born each
year at Beauval. This is fantastic not only for our
visitors but also for the survival of many species
that are becoming endangered in the wild. Some
births, whether it be a chimpanzee, hornbill, tapir,
or Indian rhinoceros, are all the more important
as these endangered species are included in the
European Endangered Species Programme (EEP),
meaning that reproduction amongst these animals
is a top priority.

MEMORABLE MOMENTS!
Here are a few of the incredible births that
happened last year…
