Collapsing ecosystems, animals threatened with extinction, deforestation... ZooParc de Beauval has supported conservation programmes for over 30 years. In 2009, the zoo decided to structure this aid through an association: Beauval Nature. Recognised as being of public interest, Beauval Nature can receive your donations and go even further, thanks to you!
We support 50 conservation programmes and 30 research programmes worldwide, with an annual budget of more than one million euros. Our funds come from donations from other zoos, from YOUR donations through sponsorships, through donations given directly, from donations from ZooParc de Beauval, and patrons. A huge thank you to all!
Each programme is carefully selected and works effectively in the field: the reintroduction of condors in the Andes; protection of cotton-top tamarins (adorable little primates) in Colombia; the reintroduction of gorillas born in Beauval in Gabon; conservation and studies on western chimpanzees, classified as critically endangered; monitoring and protection of orangutans in Malaysia; the construction of nests for ground hornbills; funding of radio collars for the reintroduction of pandas in China… These are just some examples among many of our partner programmes' actions.
In 2019, we were proud to award the first Beauval Nature Awards. 4 categories were created, with a public vote, a sponsors' vote, and the participation of two prestigious judging panels for a research award and a special grand prize.
We were pleased to present the following prizes to these extraordinary associations whose work is essential.
