Pyrénées Animal Park
The Pyrénées Animal Park, nicknamed The Marmots Hill is located in Argelès-Gazost in the Hautes-Pyrénées. It was created in 1999 by Serge Mounard, an individual, on a property operated by his dairy producing family, his idea was to present visitors a number of regional animals in a semi-wild environment. The path, in zigzag in the hills, gave the chance to admire common animals like the squirrel and otter, but to approach foxes within a few meters, ibex, isards or brown bears, it was possible to touch some species, like farm animals, a deer, as well as the main parc attraction: marmots. A pedagogical team would verify the visitors' demeanour, while keeping them informed – along with didactical pannels. A Pyrenean map updated, shows in real time the position of each member of the 25 bears living in freedom in the massif. A footprint molding workshop enables visitors to learn how to recognize animal footprints in the wild; the building at the entrance hosts a museum reconstructing, under thematical tableaus in three oral dimensions the life of wild animals of the northern hemisphere and Africa.
A souvenir shop lies at the exit – with marmot stuffed toys, namely. Marmot Deer European otter Squirrel Brown bear Fox Wolf Isard Mouflon Lynx Ibex Giant otter parc-animalier-pyrenees.com Reportage vidéo sur le parc
