The Barben Animal Park is committed to the preservation of biodiversity and the safeguarding of endangered species (the Niger giraffe, the African elephant, the rhinoceros, the red panda…). It supports various programs for the protection of animals in their natural environment (in situ conservation) and outside their natural environment (ex situ conservation) by relaying their actions to the public and by providing financial assistance.

The zoo has created its own foundation, Ecofaune, whose purpose is to collect donations from individuals, companies and schools, which are then transferred in full to the various programs it supports.
