ZOO AT LES SABLES D'OLONNE
zoological gardens range over three hectares and is situated just a
couple of hundred meters from the sea at Les Sables d’Olonne. It offers
the visitor a chance to get close to over two hundred species of animals
in as realistic a reproduction of their natural habitat as is possible.
Along with the normal animals you would expect to see in a zoo such as
Tigers, Elephants, Lions, Monkeys, Sea lions, Tropical birds and
Reptiles, you will also find many endangered species. The zoo, in
educating the public and by operating captive breeding programs is
assisting in the protection of these species in the wild.
Throughout the day the keepers encourage visitors to join in and witness
activities such as feeding the sea lions, otters, giraffes and
countless other species.
The visitor can stroll amongst the 100 year old trees and tropical
plants on paths from one enclosure to another that runs alongside the
stream, or take refreshment on the terrace overlooking the park and
absorb the sights and sounds of the Zoo at Les Sables d'Olonne.
