Zoological Park of Champrépus

The zoological park of Normandy was born from the passion of Lucien Lebreton (the grandfather of the current owners) on July 10, 1957. The zoo of Champrépus first welcomed animals from the region and then the collection grew, the park becoming, at that time, the first "care center" of the department.
