La Flèche Zoo is one of the main tourist attractions in the Pays de la Loire region, and like other animal parks in France, it had to close its doors to the public in mid-March due to the COVID-19 crisis. The good news is that the park will be able to reopen its doors to the public, applying various sanitary measures to protect visitors and animals. The team, which has continued to mobilize and care for the animals during the containment, has put in place markings on the bay windows to ensure social distancing. Hydroalcoholic gel will also be available in large numbers, and to further limit the risks, some areas will not be open, such as the elephant yard, where the proximity between animals and visitors is too great. For catering, take-away meals will be offered. The park can rely on a configuration and a large space conducive to social distancing and good flow management to allow the public to make or regain contact with the mammals, reptiles and birds that make the park a success.
