5 things you should know about our zoo:

  • INCONTRI CHE NON AVRESTI MAI DETTO DI FARE

1- ZOO ANIMALS ARE NOT TAKEN FROM THEIR NATURAL ENVIRONMENT

They were born here or come from other zoos. The transfers are due to projects supporting the preservation of endangered species or collaborative programmes among zoos.

2- ZOOS WORK TOGETHER

Our species conservation experience comes from the continuous exchange of knowledge between zoos. Birth of animals is not always a special event. In some cases birth control is necessary so as not to have too many animals of the same breed.

3- NO FUNDING

The Park has only one source of financing which comes from visitors. Many of them choose to subscribe in order to support even more projects and our values.

4- PARTICIPATING IN CONSERVATION PROGRAMMES

By getting involved you are funding our conservation projects in the wild. In recent years, we have been involved in the protection of: Lemur Lemur catta- broad gentle Lemur Madagascar Brown Bear Marsicano-Griffin-Aurora-Etna Italy Leontipetco black head-Brazil-South Africa African penguin pink-cheeked Gibbon Vietnam

5- CONSTANTLY CHANGING

Over the past 15 years the zoo has undertaken a process of profound transformation; we are working on completing it as soon as possible.
