Disneyland Paris is the number one single-site employer in France with more than 15,000 Cast Members. This professional population harbours some unexpected occupations – anything from stuntman to stable hand or even gilder (gold-leaf artisan). Today, find out more about our wildlife specialists. Within our Nature & Environment department, Nathalie Chaussé (Team Leader), Antoine Forget, Pierre Defontaine and Pierre Vanden Berghe (apprentice) protect and maintain our ecosystems. They nurture or control animal populations throughout our resort for successful coexistence with our guests and Cast Members. Before our resort was built, farms dotted the countryside and today, foxes, falcons, roe deer, even wild boars persist in our more secluded areas. Frogs and toads are some of the essential inhabitants. A recent survey of Frontierland by Nathalie’s team turned up 250 insect-hungry toads – an encouraging figure despite the drainage, then restoration of Rivers of the Far West in 2016 and also since many amphibian species worldwide are considered endangered. The team also manages 80 beehives, encourages the nesting of swallows and tits, and sets traps as well for pesky yellow-jacket wasps.
