A zoological park just a stone's throw from the city centre

With the recent opening of Archipelagos and Shores, the first zones of the park's extension and renovation project, the visitor trail has been enriched with new experiences and new species, including the magnificent Sumatran tiger.

The zoo's restaurant, Le Pavillon Bleu, combines tradition and modernity. This waterside building is none other than one of the last 19th-century guinguettes in Amiens. On the menu: a locavore menu and homemade dishes!

The zoo of tomorrow is now a vehicle for raising awareness of the protection of biodiversity. It offers an exceptional 7-hectare interlude located a stone's throw from Amiens city centre, where plants and animals can be discovered along the water.

The Amiens Zoo's educational department also organises shows, themed visits, exhibitions and workshops, supporting a rich scientific and artistic programme throughout the year.

A real island of biodiversity, combining calm, nature and a change of scenery.

The animals at the Amiens Zoo

Amiens Zoo houses more than a hundred animal species and houses nearly 700 animals that are ambassadors for vulnerable ecosystems. The park plays an important role in the protection of endangered species and the advancement of scientific research.

The scientific collections presented to the public include mammals, birds, fish, amphibians, reptiles and insects from all five continents. The vast majority of the animals come from other European zoos, or sometimes from further afield. The most endangered species are transferred within the framework of international rescue programmes, within the European Association of Zoos and Aquariums (EAZA). Amiens Zoo is home to nearly 30 species considered endangered in the wild.

At the same time, Amiens Zoo finances numerous international in situ conservation projects: protection of red pandas in Nepal, rehabilitation of Asian hornbills in India, reintroduction of the crested tortoise in Senegal, protection of the pinched tamarin in Colombia, etc.
