Eco-Lite: Loro Parque, Tenerife, Spain

OVERVIEW

Loro Parque sets the standard for zoos, especially zoos that feature walk-in aviaries!  The exhibits reflect the bird/animal’s native habitat and there are detailed explanations about where they come from and if they are endangered and why.  Loro Parque will appeal to all members of the family whether they are bird-crazy or not!  In addition to the most diverse genetic reserve of parrots in the world (more than 4,000 specimens of 350 different species and subspecies), there are also shows featuring Orcas, Dolphins, Sea Lions & Penguins.  If you bring your family with you to the International Parrot Conference, this is a great way to keep them entertained!  I am not usually a fan of trained animal shows but Loro Parque does treat their birds and animals right.  You will see this in the photos below.

You can’t go past the top zoo in Europe and 3rd best zoo in the world!
