The Zoological Parks Of Lumigny : 3 Good Reasons To Visit This Zoo
After recording a record of nearly 400,000 visitors in 2022, the zoological parks of Lumigny have been given a makeover before their reopening to the public. We have listed for you 3 good reasons to visit this zoo where animal welfare dictates the layout of the premises.
1- It is a unique place in France
Much more than just a zoo, the parcs zoologiques de Lumigny site is a 100-hectare sanctuary, where more than 500 animals live in an environment as close as possible to their natural habitat.
If you don't like going to the zoo because you feel like the animals live in a small space, these two wooded parks located only 60 minutes from Paris will change your mind!
On this site, you won't find cramped enclosures but vast spaces. Not only do the animals have room to grow, but the vegetation has been designed to allow them to express themselves fully.
At Lumigny-Nesle-Ormeaux, nothing is left to chance to guarantee the well-being of the species. The size of the enclosures but also the sunlight and the vegetation of the premises are adapted to offer the boarders a living environment as close as possible to their natural habitat.
2- Two parks honor felines and monkeys
If we talk about the zoological parks of Lumigny in the plural, it is because this exceptional site is composed of two theme parks: the Parc des Félins and the Terre de Singes.
On the one hand, the Parc des Félins is home to 160 residents that you can discover by following four walking tours. This park is also home to an island of lemurs where visitors can admire 60 small primates in the wild.
On the other hand, La Terre de Singes is a 21-hectare space where some 300 animals live. Here you can meet macaques, tamarins and geladas native to Ethiopia.
You can also walk among the birds by entering two huge aviaries. One houses parrots with a thousand colors and the other rainbow lorikeets (birds also famous for their bright colors).
3- These parks are committed to animal welfare and the preservation of species
In anticipation of the reopening to the public on February 1, 2023, the Lumigny zoological parks have redesigned their spaces and have planned new projects with animal welfare in mind.
The founders of this zoo are forerunners in animal welfare and are constantly improving the spaces that house nearly 600 animals in total. This year, the tigers will benefit from the creation of ponds, while the ouandérou monkeys, also known as lion-tailed macaques, will see their habitat expanded.
In addition, these zoological parks do not only offer attractions such as train tours, a mini farm and a 4D attraction. They also offer educational events and conduct breeding and fostering programs for animals from wildlife trafficking.
This leisure facility not only aims to offer its visitors a unique experience, but also to raise awareness about the issue of species preservation. In 2022, the two parks welcomed 72,000 school children. They will of course continue their educational actions aimed at school audiences during the year 2023, which looks promising with a hundred or so births expected!
The zoological parks of Lumigny reopened to the public this year from 1 February 2023.
