A committed and responsible zoo

The Sables-d’Olonne zoo is not a place like any other. This zoo aims to raise visitors’ awareness of eco-conversation and to make them responsible for the preservation of biodiversity. Following an Eco-friendly management method, this park aims to limit its impact on the environment as much as possible. The Sables-d’Olonne zoo also supports numerous conservation projects for endangered species, through several international collaborations.

The course of the visit

Working firmly to protect endemic species, as well as local biodiversity, this establishment is home to nearly 500 exotic animals. It is possible to find 60 different species there which are subject to protection measures of European and international standards. In fact, these animals live in enclosures that faithfully imitate their natural environments.

The zoo also organizes theme days and bilingual activities for the enjoyment of visitors. Meal rituals are arranged there with the participation of everyone.

The zoo staff works with professionalism and provides all the necessary care to the animals in order to obtain as many births as possible. Moreover, their efforts have borne fruit, as several newborns are visible in the park during your visit.

Practical information
