Considered one of the rarest felines in the world with only around a hundred individuals recorded in the wild, the Amur panther is part of a European conservation program (EEP).
In 2024, the Boissière du Doré zoo is proud to participate in the work of saving this animal with the long-term objective of a gradual reintroduction of individuals into their natural environment in order to reduce the risk of extinction.

The park also wishes to strengthen its commitment to safeguarding animals in their natural environment. To do this, from each entry ticket, €1 will be donated to the Boissière Mervent Conservation association, which finances more than twenty conservation programs around the world.
