One of the cornerstones of this mission is to awaken children’s interest in the animal world and make . them aware of the importance of conservation from an early age. Animal parks are privileged places where children are in direct contact with both flora and fauna. Getting up close and personal with species often inspires a sense of wonder –
the first step on the road to a passion for wildlife! Encountering a fallow deer,
a Tibetan goat or a corn snake often leaves a positive, indelible impression on a child’s mind. Animal reserves also have a role to play in explaining to children the importance of preserving wildlife for the future of our planet.Finally, many children, after visiting a zoo, develop an interest in wildlife-related careers. Animal parks are often a source of inspiration for those who aspire to work for the preservation of the animal world.Visit a wildlife park in French-speaking Switzerland In the Côte region of French-speaking Switzerland, Parc du Signal de Bougy invites you to discover over 23 different species spread over 17,000 square meters.
