Touroparc Conservation: an endowment
An endowment fund was created in 2010 « Touroparc Conservation » aimed at financing actions of preservation of animal species in their natural environment. Of the project are already in place for Makis Cattas of Madagascar, elephants and giraffes in Zambia, gibbons in Indonesia and land tapirs in Brazil. Touroparc.zoo member of EAZA, the European Association of Zoos and Aquariums, also supports the campaign for the Asian Southeast animals. Financial and technical assistance is provided to the holders of such in-situ projects Touroparc Conservation organizations.
This endowment lives through:
– Donations from Touroparc.zoo (30% of the tariff for VIP and Passion Trainer formulas)
– By donations from the public who wishes to support these actions for animals.
Touroparc Conservation supports:
Kalaweit mission saving the gibbons and their habitat in Indonesia. Today it is the largest project to save the gibbons in the world. Indonesia’s forests are being undermined by the extraction of exotic woods and especially by the production of palm oil.

Sensitized teams Kalaweit Touroparc CONSERVATION joined the great chain of solidarity and symbolically bought a hectare of forest by making a special donation to the association of € 1,150.

– SCCC – CONSERVATION PROJECT Luambe
Born in late 2003 to protect the Lumabe National Park, this project covers one of the last wild and woody South African whose wildlife is extraordinary savannas. Although declared a natural park in 1938, the enclave has been neglected and is the only natural corridor between North and South Luangwa National Park. Different parts of the park have seen their economic activities grow and villagers were informed of the importance of biodiversity conservation. The lives of men and animals were able to be improved.
