Throughout the year,
the zoo offers a great choice of special events
Meet the Keeper
These daily sessions offer visitors the chance to get better acquainted with a variety of fascinating animals: what they eat, their lifestyle and behaviours, the threats they are facing in the wild, the new role of zoos… These sessions are an opportunity to observe, discuss and learn, designed for young and old alike, with the family or in a group.
