WHAT IS CONSERVATION ?

For wildlife parks, there are two main ways of doing conservation  :

  • either breed endangered species to preserve their genetic heritage and make them available for reintroduction projects if necessary (ex situ conservation),
  • or get involved in field projects that aim to safeguard or reintroduce endangered species (in situ conservation).

The Réserve Africaine de Sigean is involved in both approaches.
