    Scimitar-horned Oryx

    "Extinct in Nature" is the sad international status of Scimitar-horned Oryx. This species therefore survives only through zoos. An international program is coordinating the efforts of zoos around the world to ensure its survival. This program works through management divided between three major regions: North America, Australasia and Japan, Europe. With more than 400 animals in more than 70 institutions, Europe is the most active and efficient region. The management of this European sub-population is ensured by the scientific team of the Parc Zoo du Reynou.

    Girafe

    Giraffes

    The giraffe is the largest land mammal. It is also one of the most popular with young and old! Yet these majestic animals are in a silent phase of extinction ... They are under heavy pressure in some of their major ranges in East, Central and West Africa. Three of the nine subspecies are currently recognized as endangered, including the Kordofan giraffe, present at Parc Zoo du Reynou.
    A very good news is the Rothschild giraffe (also present at Parc Zoo du Reynou), whose status is improving! This is a great example of conservation success.
