Famous Zoo in AMNEVILLE


Famous Zoo in AMNEVILLE

Amnéville Zoo is the realisation of a child’s dream: Michel Louis’s passion for the animal world was ignited when he visited the animals in a large French circus. As a child, a teenager and then as a student Michel spent all his free time visiting zoos and decided that, one day, he would set up his own. The original idea of a zoo in Amneville began in 1978. Initially, the project was met with scepticism and hostility and no-one believed in the idea, except the doctor Jean Kiffer who was the only support for Michel Louis and Jean-Marc Vichard, the two crazy young people who dared to go against the grain! But the determination of Michel and Jean-Marc managed to get the project through all its difficulties and on the 28th June 1986 the Amnéville Zoo opened its doors to the public.
