Deyrolle (1831) is a reference institution in the natural sciences (specializing in taxidermy and entomology) and education on fauna and flora.

It is presented as a museum shop (with skeletons, stuffed animals and insect pictures) at 46 du Bac Street in Paris, and is considered an Entreprise du patrimoine vivant (EPV), an official certificate issued by the Ministry of Economy and Finance of France. It currently has research centers in more than 120 countries.

The last cabinet of curiosities open to the public, the institution is dedicated to promoting the creation of resilient ecosystems that put Nature, Art and Education at the center of the relationship between man and his environment. In the proposals for territorial planning around this triptych (Nature-Art-Education), Deyrolle proposes to create interconnected centers of excellence that allow us to approach, for example, agroecology and permaculture, pedagogy, innovation, reclining, among other matters relating to the environment.

Painters like Dubuffet, Mathieu, surrealists like Salvador Dali, writers like Louise de Vilmorinont attended, in their time, Deyrolle.


Deyrolle was the first provider of public instruction in the nineteenth century. He was responsible for the teaching of botany, zoology, geology, physics, anatomy, civics (and other scientific subjects) to different generations of students from illustrated publications, distributed in schools, which became iconic. The institution became a world reference in the production of pedagogical material around the natural sciences.

The “Deyrolle pour l’Avenir” emerges, in the hands of LAB, to relaunch the purpose of educating through collections of didactic materials, with the usual use of illustrations, on contemporary environmental and social issues.

The collections are developed jointly with the Ministry of Ecology and the Ministry of National Education of France and are also supported by reference institutions such as the World Wildlife Fund and the World Health Organization.

In 2015, Deyrolle became the official partner of COP21 for Education and the “Deyrolle pour l’Avenir” – organized activities for the school public during the UN Conference on Climate Change (COP21) in Paris – launched the book Redessiner le Monde (Redesign the World), signed by LAB, and with a preface by Laurent Fabius, Minister of Foreign Affairs and President of COP21, which was delivered to 195 official delegations and address different topics that aim to explain the current environmental challenges and social challenges facing the world.

Deyrolle also benefits from an agreement with UNESCO.
