Environmental Enhancements for the Lyon Facility

Brightly colored manipulation activity

The welfare of the animals in our care continues to be our top priority and we are continually seeking new ways to enrich their environments. Our facility in Lyon, France is currently undergoing a major refurbishment to update the facilities for some of our large animal species.

We have reached the end of phase I of redevelopment, phase II will be rolled out in Q3 2018.

So far, the changes include:

  • Replacement of clear yellow panels, for bright, multi-coloured alternatives helps provide stimulation
  • The incorporation of hiding places and other visual barriers to provide privacy
  • Treats hidden in sawdust and toys to encourage exploratory behavior
