Zoo Bioparc in Valencia

50

The zoo in Valencia, called Bioparc, is situated next to the park “Parque de la Cabecera”. In the 2008 the zoo with more than 10 hectares was reopened. More than 4000 animals live in the enclosures. The 250 different types of animals mainly come from Africa.

To mention is, that you are able to get really close to the animals and that the area you walk in is really pretty itself.

The zoo puts a lot of emphasise on the fact that the animals enclosures should be the most natural as possible and that the plants and trees come from the area where the animals homeland is. Also the Bioparc zoo works on the conservation of endangered animals and supports breeding programmes to conserve wildlife.
