Support the Aquarium shelter !
The Aquarium of Limousin has always been strongly committed to the protection of aquatic fauna and flora. Before becoming a tourist site, the site was home to an animal shelter welcoming fish and turtles abandoned by their owners. In order to contribute to the needs of animals, the refuge became a public aquarium in 1993. The only Aquarium-refuge in the center of France, today the Aquarium provides, more than ever, its functions as an animal refuge. On average, 5 fish and 1 turtle per week join our premises. We also note that these figures increase in the summer period.
If you want to support the shelter, you can get closer to our teams or send your donations directly to « Aquarium du Limousin – 2 Boulevard Gambetta 87000 LIMOGES ». The funds provided are used for veterinary monitoring of abandoned fish and turtles.
