An island of biodiversity
Close to the city center
Amiens Zoo is a major tourist and cultural establishment in the Hauts-de-France region. It is home to nearly 700 animals, ambassadors of some of the most endangered species on the planet, such as the Sumatran tiger.
Every day, women and men mobilize in favor of the conservation of endangered ecosystems, help advance scientific research, or support the public in their discovery of sometimes surprising species.
Let yourself be surprised by this haven of greenery and waterways where you will experience an exceptional break to meet the flora and fauna of the five continents.
A daily commitment
Involved in the European Association of Zoos and Aquariums (EAZA) since 2001, the zoo actively participates in the ex-situ programs of the EAZA (EEP).
These programs aim to conserve a sustainable and diverse genetic heritage for the species it concerns.
If necessary, some animals resulting from these programs can be reintroduced into the natural environment in order to strengthen the wild populations. Thus, in the summer of 2020, the Amiens Zoo team participated in the reintroduction of the Ural owl (Strix uralensis) by releasing individuals born in the park into a Bavarian forest.

The Pavillon bleu
Built in 1875, the Pavillon Bleu is an integral part of the Amiens heritage. Completely renovated according to its original plans, the establishment now houses the zoo restaurant.
It offers a well-deserved break to park visitors in the rural setting of one of the last Amiens taverns built on the waterfront. Combining tradition and modernity, it offers a local menu and homemade dishes directly inspired by the banks of the Somme river.
