Faites votre part dans la préservation de la nature

Quand on parle de préservation de la nature, l’un des défis les plus importants demeure celui d’intéresser et d’impliquer la communauté.

C’est avec l’aide des visiteurs que le Zoo de Granby peut participer à la préservation et à l’acquisition de connaissances de toutes sortes d’espèces d’animaux. Le Zoo de Granby collabore a de nombreux projets de recherche et de conservation dans le milieu naturel au Québec et à l’étranger. Le saviez-vous?

Qu’est-ce que le projet Q4C?

En 2008, le Cheyenne Mountain Zoo dans l’état du Colorado a inventé un module de dons tout à fait particulier. Le projet Q4C (Quarter for Conservation) offre aux visiteurs une façon simple de participer a des offensives de recherche et de conservation en nature.

Un don volontaire de 25 cents est proposé. On remet alors au visiteur un jeton qu’il investit, à son choix, dans l’un des projets proposés par le Zoo. Le jeton ou la pièce de monnaie est ainsi placé dans un module interactif et amusant pour les petits et les grands.

L’implication du Zoo de Granby

Le Zoo de Granby fait partie de la vingtaine de parcs zoologiques Nord-Américain à opérer ce genre de module. Le titre « don pour la Planète » arbore lemodule du Zoo situé à l’entrée du Village. 

La réalisation de ce projet a été rendue possible grâce à la collaboration de la firme Favreau-Blais, d’un artiste et d’une firme spécialisée en conception de modules de Granby.

Une étude sur le comportement des visiteurs dans les zoos où un module a été installé indique une augmentation de 39% de la conscience de ces derniers face à la fragilité de la nature et au rôle des zoos à améliorer le sort de la planète.

En 2013, 11 zoos, dont le Zoo de Granby, ont amassé 1 M$ grâce à cette idée originale.

We had an excellent time! We have not been in over 10 years and are so glad we went! The park is clean. The food was well priced for a theme park. We loved the Dinozoo! We have terrible French speaking abilities but appreciated your courteous and friendly staff, we felt welcome!

It's the 3rd year in a row that my family and I visit this Zoo. Even though it was during the busiest day they had this year, we were able to visit everything and fully enjoy the experience. Don't forget to bring your bathing suit cause they have an amazing wave pool!

A good place for family outing with zoo, water park and rides all at one place. All the attractions are conveniently placed very close to each other. Food court is good too and you can also bring in your lunch.

Amazing place to take the family! Lots of animals to see, amazing water park and fun rides. Great packages available with hotels close by for out of town visitors. Highly recommend!

Paul Winch

What a great time. Would definitely go again. The zoo care takers are amazing at what they do and so friendly. I would recommend if you have never gone it's a bucket list. Oh and don't forget to go and pet the sting rays.

Jamie Krichtoff

We love going to the zoo. (…) Most of the animals were out and the grandkids were thrilled. I'd never been to the Dinozoo before and I thought it was pretty cool especially with the movement and sounds. The design is great in that it's seperated and all goes back to the center.

First time visiting here on our annual summer week in Québec. We went for the 2 day family pass, and had an amazing time. The 2 days allowed us to take our time around the park, and gave plenty of time as well for cooling off at the Amazoo. We'll definitely come back!
