Paris Zoo takes on a new form and offers you to discover its new trail “Biodiversité” (French for biodiversity), a playful and sensorial tour of 12 experiments. With your hands, your feet or your eyes experiment wild animals’ lives with your family!

Do your kids spend their time running everywhere and touching everything? If so, they will be delighted to discover Parc Zoologique de Paris new installations. All along your visit, you will discover a series of funny tools including:

11 playful tools: all along the public aisles or at some observatory points, new tools have been set up. Intuitive, simple and available to all, these installations allow us to know more whilst having fun. They blend perfectly in the landscape offering us an extra experience.

For example, you will discover: resin molds of primate’s hands and of legs and paws of different species. Mechanical stagings allow you to touch, observe animal’s anatomy up close and to understand ecosystems fragile balance.
