The Calviac Zoological Reserve was created in 2008, with the aim of preserving some of the most endangered animal species, through captive breeding programmes coordinated at the European level and also by operating directly in the field, as for European mink.
It allows the reproduction of many species under its management, sets up educational workshops for a school audience, and ecological management of the site.
The Calviac Zoological Reserve contributes to the conservation of European mink through numerous actions at the European level.
