Espace Zoologique St-Martin la Plaine was opened to the public in April 1972 directed by Pierre and Eliane Thivillonand (still the owners of the zoo currently). It is located close to Rive-de-Gier and is home to species from all around the world representing the five continents including mammals, apes, marsupials, reptiles, birds and many others. The first gorilla kept at St.Martin la plaine was a one year old male called Alexis, who died in 2007. In February 1980, they imported a reproductive group from Cameroon that bred for first time in February 1995, when Atanga was born to parents Hyasmina and Tam Tam.

St-Martin la Plaine Zoo has four different enclosures to house the different gorilla groups they have. Each one of them has its own indoor enclosure.
