Sea lions

Zoo d'Amneville - Animaux - Otarie

The sea lion experience is exceptional, as much in the enormity of the installation as in the innovative methods used by our animal keepers. They will showcase the natural behaviour of sea lions, raise our awareness about the problem of polluted oceans and reveal sea lions’ extraordinary intelligence, equal to that of the dolphin!

The public will marvel at the bonds between the animal keepers and their sea lions, including the dominant males, who can nevertheless reveal themselves as dangerous; this tends to be overlooked when seeing the keepers and the sea lions play about in the water like two friends at the swimming pool!

Birds of prey

Zoo d'Amneville - Rapace

A magnificent experience of birds of prey in free flight is presented to you by the falconers on horseback at Amnéville Zoo. An enormous arena (2,500 seats) transports you into the fantastical world of these predators of the sky!

Playful and educational at the same time, this experience shows the techniques of hunting with falcons, Harris’s Hawk and Fisher Eagles. It encourages us to protect these magnificent predators and respect their environment. The finale is breath-taking; more than sixty birds unleashed simultaneously, among them the largest birds of prey in the world!

Parrots

Zoo d'Amneville - Oiseaux

Around fifth parrots (greenwing macaws, macaws, blue-and-yellow macaws, white-crested cockatoo and blue-fronted Amazon) comprise this experience, which is presented in the magnificent setting of the TIGERWORLD room, containing 2,000 seats.

Firstly, against a backdrop of digital projections and special effects, evoking the jungle and climactic upheavals, the narrator recites various educational facts about parrots: how they are characterised, how they live and the threats they face caused by deforestation and trafficking.

Some visitors, children most often, are invited to take part in certain exercises: an unforgettable moment!

Tigers

Zoo d'Amneville - Animaux - Tigre

The room appears to be an immense cavern giving shelter to a Khmer temple and opening onto the mountain in the heart of the jungle; 53 metres in diameter, 2,000 individual seats with backrests and total visibility, heated in the winter and air-conditioned in the summer. You get there via an ornate pre-historic grotto of rock carvings, underneath waterfalls, which gush out of a 16 metre high cliff.

Through TIGERWORLD, the ambition is raising visitors’ awareness of the tiger’s beauty and the ecological drama attending its disappearance. They wish the tiger to become a symbol to inform the public about conservation of biodiversity, the fight against trafficking and destruction of natural environments. Teaching is everywhere, with educational spaces of total beauty dedicated to the tiger’s biology and its conservation. An adventure trail allows children to set off in search of the prehistoric “sabre-toothed tiger”.
