The Bioparc de la Gaspésie is home to about 40 animal species indigenous to the region in a setting that resembles their natural habitat. Explore the interpretive trail along which you can encounter these animals during interpretive activities as well as observe them feeding. Visit the pavilion featuring amphibians and reptiles from Québec as well as the insectarium where you can admire an impressive collection of living and preserved insects. You can also visit the animals at the petting farm and spend the night at the Bioparc during the “Overnight with the Wolves” activity.
