Loro Parque, Siam Park, Poema del Mar, Loro Parque Fundación, Hotel Botánico and Brunelli’s jointly attend this week the World Travel Market, the prestigious B2B travel fair which takes place annually in London with the aim of presenting the most important novelties that the Company offers its clients.
Loro Parque, the Best Zoo in the World and an Animal Embassy
Loro Parque is an impressive animal embassy that offers the unique experience of discovering wildlife like never before, with species and ecosystems from the five continents, from the lush Amazon jungle to the cold landscapes of Antarctica. Thus, visitors are able to discover the wonders and splendid beauty of nature without having to travel to all corners of the planet.
Among its main attractions are the impressive and educational presentations of Orcas and Dolphins, as well as the legendary Parrot Show, in addition to the precious Red Pandas, the majestic Lions of Angola, or the largest and most diverse parrot reserve in the world. You can also meet the Pygmy Hippos, whose new home adapts perfectly to the needs of this species in danger of extinction in the wild, and the charismatic Ring-Tailed Lemurs, an animal so beloved through its appearance on the cinema screen. The Zen Garden is a unique exhibition inspired by Japanese gardens and the majestic mountain ranges of Asia that can be appreciated in the AquaViva exhibition, the home of the most spectacular jellyfish.
Thus, it is not surprising that Loro Parque has a large number of worldwide recognitions, which reward its commitment to excellence and its absolute concern for animal welfare. In the 47 years of its history and after having received some 50 million visitors in its facilities, the Park has received the Plaque and the Gold Medal for Tourist Merit awarded by the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Tourism of Spain, the Gold Medal of the Government of the Canary Islands, of the city of Puerto de la Cruz and of the Island Council of Tenerife, among other awards. Loro Parque is also the only company in the Canary Islands that has received the Prince Felipe Award for Business Excellence, as well as it is the only zoo in Europe that has the “American Certified” Animal Welfare Certification from the respected organization American Humane (USA).
For Loro Parque, these recognitions imply a responsibility and, therefore, it has a clear mission for the protection of the environment. Thus, as a wildlife conservation centre and through the Loro Parque Foundation, it has managed to save nine species from imminent extinction. Also, as part of this commitment, since 2018 the Park has implemented a strategy of elimination of single-use plastic, becoming one of the first zoos in Europe that replaces plastic water bottles by other biodegradable and compostable bottles, to stop producing waste from these bottles for single use.
This is why each year the Park awards its traditional Premio Gorila award, with which it values environmental responsibility, taking into account strategies and actions to conserve biodiversity and the sustainable use of resources. On this occasion, the award went to Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, for his customer-oriented policy with a strong commitment to environmental sustainability, in addition to reward Jet2.com as the first airline that reduces the use of plastic on board.
Also, as part of this philosophy, Loro Parque has organized for the end of November an event to raise awareness about the impact of plastic on the planet, in collaboration with the University of La Laguna in Tenerife. Thus, sculptures made from recycled materials will be installed in different places of reference on the island, to mobilise the consciences of locals and visitors and to encourage them to change their habits.
Siam Park: the Best Water Park in the World for six years in a row!
There is no doubt: Siam Park is the best aquatic park that exists in the world, and it is located in Spain. This has been confirmed by the Travellers’ Choice Award, which Siam Park has received for six consecutive years thanks to the positive ratings of its visitors on the prestigious travel portal TripAdvisor. Siam Park is the only park that has achieved this distinction so many times in a row, and also the only one that has received this award since TripAdvisor inaugurated the “water parks” category six years ago.
This repeated recognition is undoubtedly the result of constant innovation and reinvestment of the Loro Parque Company in all its projects, with which it always pursues excellence. In addition to being a reference in the TripAdvisor awards, it also has international recognition from organizations such as the leading magazine and signifier in the valuation of theme parks Kirmes & Park Revue, which has awarded Siam Park with the European Star Award for best water park in Europe for the seventh consecutive year, among many others.
The beauty of this park, in itself, is an incomparable attraction, and nothing is like being able to enjoy attractions that are unique in the world, in an unprecedented setting of lush vegetation and Thai design and decoration.
Poema del Mar, an Spectacular Aquarium in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
Poema del Mar, one of the most spectacular aquariums in the world, inaugurated in 2017, has turned the city of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria into a strategic location for tourism.
Thus, just two years after its opening, this spacious aquarium offers its visitors a unique opportunity: take a trip to the deepest ocean with its Deep Sea exhibition, which has the world’s largest curved exhibition window, 36 meters wide and 7.35 meters high, as well as 39 centimeters thick. With a total tank depth of 8.5 meters and 5.5 million liters of water, Deep Sea allows you to observe the wonders of the depths of the oceans in an incomparable surrounding and about 3,000 specimens of up to 40 different species that swim in its dark waters.
Poema del Mar has a firm commitment to innovation, biodiversity conservation and excellence in sustainable tourism. It is no coincidence that the authorities of the Canary Islands have considered it “of strategic interest for the region”, which reinforces the promotion of Gran Canaria, and the entire archipelago, as one of the best tourist destinations on an international level.
Loro Parque Fundación: 25 Years of Commitment and Love for Nature
In 1994, Loro Parque consolidated its firm commitment to environmental work through the creation of the Loro Parque Fundación, an international non-profit organization specializing in the conservation and protection of species of parrots and marine mammals, amongst other animals, that are in danger of extinction.
Each year, thanks to Loro Parque’s funding of the Foundation’s operational costs, 100% of the donations received go directly to in situ and ex situ conservation and/or education projects. Thus, ‘100% for nature’ is not just a slogan, but goes much further: it is a reality.
Its numbers and results speak for themselves: more than $ 21 million USD invested in over 180 projects on five continents, and nine species of parrots saved directly from imminent extinction.
In addition, Loro Parque Fundación maintains a firm commitment to the marine biodiversity of the Canary Islands and dedicates a significant part of its resources to its protection through projects with Loro Parque Fundación and the Poema del Mar aquarium.
