Paris hotel near Zoological Park is the Sport Hotel - the perfect base to see the revolutionary new way that the totally redesigned Paris Zoo, best known as the Zoo de Vincennes, is approaching conservation and biodiversity as part of its bid to become one of the most important public institutions in France.

The Paris Zoological Park : a 21st century international centre for conservation and biodiversity

The Paris Zoological Park has just reopened after a multi-year, multi-million euro makeover that has transformed it from an old-fashioned place to view captive animals into a 21st century international centre for conservation and biodiversity.The Zoo now has a partnership with Paris's renowned National Museum of Natural History in both breeding programmes and conservation. One of the ideas is to protect endangered species, by keeping them in settings that resemble their natural environments in the wild.Zoo authorities say a key role now is to educate everyone who visits, so that when you and your family leave you'll have a new view of why and how these animals need to be looked after.

Scientists will constantly be at work at the new-look Zoo, with research ranging from looking at the behavior of animals to fighting the infectious diseases that can kill them. Even the animals' food is the subject of investigation.
