Association

Introduction

The Parc’Ours association has been created in January 9th, 2010 by formers employees, volunteers and members of the animal park. Its founders worked several months on this new project, in agreement with environment’s respect. The Borce’s animal park recovery, first touristic site in Aspe valley, allows, among others, job’s maintenance and creation. It also preserved touristic and economical activities and wild species’ conservation in Aspe valley.

The association’s purpose is to participate in the fauna and flora’s protection and conservation in informing and alerting pedagogically the public to the environmental issues and more specifically to the animal protection. The association wants to work with local actors whether they are farmers, craftmans, shops or associations according to the expression “United we stand, divided we fall” !
The association takes care of mountains’ animals unknown of the public, abandoned animals, seized, injured, threatened or concerned by an environmental problematic. Parc’ours sets up annual events with topic’s days with intervenants on subjects like apiculture, pastoralism, botanic, shearing…
The park’s reopening is a reward for the devotion and the passion of the members. It needed a lot of work from the volunteers to rebuild the site and organize the project. The association thanks a lot everyone who believed in the future of the animal park. We hope that you will enjoy the visit on the website, and hope that we may count you among our members.
