In this modern zoo, wildlife live in a cageless environment in habitats as close to their natural ones as possible. The Bioparc is involved in almost 50 international breeding progams for species in danger of extinction and also supports conservation projects in Africa and several prominent ecological initiatives. Four different habitats have been created, and chimpanzees, big cats, and crocodiles may be viewed, together with other mammals such as white tiger and pygmy hippos, as well as reptiles and birds. There are also daily shows and exhibitions, and various places to get refreshments. In July and August, the zoo stays open late to allow visitors to see the noctural animals.
