Protection of endangered species

At Sainte-Croix, we are committed to environmental conservation and protection.

Sainte-Croix nature reserve and Nature Lodges

A nature reserve spanning 120 hectares, the Parc Animalier de Sainte-Croix is home to a selection of European fauna and is a contributor to worldwide biodiversity. Explore the five areas of our leafy park where 1,500 animals representing 100 species roam freely. And you don’t even need to go home at the end of the day! Stay in one of our eco nature lodges.

Now 42 years old, Sainte-Croix attracts over 360,000 visitors each year and plays a major role in raising public awareness about the importance of biodiversity.        

A committed nature reserve

The park has an ongoing mission to safeguard endangered species. We are involved in several European conservation programmes, and contribute to research, breeding and reintroduction. In 2016 we set up Sainte-Croix Biodiversité to raise funds to protect endangered species and natural habitats, at a local and an international level.
