the first animals from the Orangerie zoo are gone!

The City made a commitment last summer in favor of moving them to sanctuaries and that’s it, the first animals from the Orangerie zoo have left! For the moment, only flamingos and turtles have left their enclosures.

In June 2021, the municipality positioned itself on the thorny file of the Orangerie zoo and expressed itself during the municipal council in favor of the transformation of the structure and the movement of wild animals in shrines. A reduction in subsidies for the Friends of the Orangerie zoo association had therefore been voted.

Sincethis interminable file is still the subject of exchanges between the City and the association. But a first step has already been taken, since at the Orangerie zoo, the first enclosures are emptying. The six flamingos of Chile have been transferred are no longer present in their aviary and it is the same on the side of the two turtles broadsides that have left their terrarium.
