It's about time. This is new, just ignored for too long. Why not a petition to DC to demand this in all US zoos?

A lot of people don't realize how techy the French are and how serious they are about recycling. Saint-Aignan is between Tours and Paris. I would love to see the Beauval Zoo. One of the things I have never had time to do in France is see a zoo. I have visited the Fondation Brigitte Bardot in Paris. I went to make a donation and shop in the gift shop.

all zoos should do this too and save money to run their zoos

I recently visited the Woodland Zoo here in Seattle. It was a guided tour, very informative. The guide told us about Zoo Poo and the fact that they do not serve road kill to their animals. Generally Zoos make me sad. What we need are more animal sanctuaries.

Noted. Good for France! I may not be the only one who wonders what the smell would be like. Perhaps one of their fabulous cologne companies can chip in. I like the park idea, turning in dog poop. I don't want free wi-fi, but perhaps it - or something else - would encourage the folks where I walk my little guy. I dare say, needing the giggle, that if we ever consider this biofuel as a national resource, that we would find so much "poop" around congressional meetings that we would never need to court Big Oil ever again!

I wonder if that would work for Toronto City Hall and Ottawa?
