A proud fox
Foxes are proud animals. You can’t force them to do what you want.
But if you treat them with respect, magical moments can happen.
A curious animal
Foxes are curious animals. Nikki is no exception.
You have to give her time and space and she herself comes over to see what you are doing.
What will your contribution be used for?
Nikki is the representative of all the foxes that come to the Zoo of the Pyrenees. It doesn’t matter if they can go back to nature or if they have to stay with us for life.
