Our utmost concern is animal welfare understood in a comprehensive manner. We care for the animals that live in our park with love and respect. We design specific plans for each species and animal under our care, and we do so based on the biological findings obtained in modern zoos and through the application of veterinary knowledge to wildlife
- Freedom from hunger and thirst.
- Freedom from discomfort through appropriate environment.
- Freedom from pain, injury, or disease.
- Freedom from fear and distress.
- Freedom to express normal behaviour.
These 5 principles guide the day-to-day life of Loro Parque.
We care for our animals with love and utmost respect to ensure their well-being and dignity.
We provide the animals in our care with the Five Freedoms (Animal Welfare Council, 1979).
We regard all animals that live in Loro Parque as ambassadors of their own species and their natural habitats
We support research and conservation activities for endangered species under human care and in natural ecosystems.
We are a sanctuary for any wild animal that needs our help.
Excellence as a standard of quality
In 50 years of Loro Parque’s history, we have certified animal welfare, the quality of our facilities and our work dynamics. We do this through certifications from the most relevant national and international associations for biodiversity care and conservation.
As the scientific community acquires knowledge about animals, their behaviours, and needs, we improve our facilities and generate dynamics that enrich the daily life of each individual and species.
Each animal under the care of Loro Parque receives the highest quality veterinary care, which transcends physical well-being and extends to psychological care.
The close collaboration between modern zoos and zoological professionals allows us to offer the best humane management of wild animals.
Thus, becoming true sanctuaries, where visitors learn to love and respect each species that lives in the park.
Our commitment to biodiversity conservation transcends the limits of the park and extends to the whole planet through Loro Parque Fundación. We have invested more than 20 million dollars in conservation projects mainly related to parrots and cetaceans.
In addition to this we are actively involved in the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of animals in need of help. A conservation activity we have already carried out with parrots, gorillas, chimpanzees, penguins, orcas, sea lions, turtles, alligators, and many other species.
Today, more than ever, modern zoos are key elements in the conservation of species. Our daily life and your visit to Loro Parque play a role in the fight against the extinction of species.
