oro Parque is not an animal exhibition; it is a biodiversity protection center where each species residing within it plays a crucial role in preserving its survival in the natural world.
The educational work of scientifically-based zoological parks is one of the foundations for species protection. Through direct knowledge of the animals living in Loro Parque, the public gets closer to real-life experiences, developing empathy and interest in beings that would otherwise only be data and events from other parts of the world.
Every year, thousands of families visit the park and receive comprehensive information about the needs of the animal world and the ecosystems in which these species live.
This educational work is even more intensive in schools in the Canary Islands: over 300,000 students have visited the park to engage in activities that the educational team conducts for them each year. During these sessions, they learn about the species, their actual situation in nature, the ongoing projects, and all the details tailored to their educational level.
Upon leaving the park, they demonstrate that their concern for the survival of species has grown. This is an essential step for the new generations to become aware and active in caring for the planet.
