The Beauval zoo has dethroned the castles of the Loire, Chambord and Chenonceau. And all thanks to the new prince of the Loire: Yuan Meng, the baby panda born in the summer of 2017. He is the first panda born in France, the son of Huan Huan and Yan Ze, the two pandas that the zoo has been hosting since 2012. But this birth is also the culmination of a family saga that has been going on for 40 years, that of the Delors, the creators of Beauval Park.
Françoise Delors, and her two children Delphine and Rodolphe are passionate about animals and the preservation of species. Symbol of endangered species, the panda has its place in their park. This documentary took them behind the scenes of international diplomacy.
