Loro Parque has become, almost since the beginning of its activity, a breeding and conservation space for flamingos. Although not an endangered species, CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) has noted that they require protection and regulation to prevent their populations from decreasing. Therefore, safe and protected spaces like Loro Parque play a crucial role in the conservation and understanding of the species.
Flamingos are birds characterized by their long legs and necks, and a distinctive curved beak ideal for searching for food in the mud. They gather in large flocks, forming subgroups ranging from 3 to 6 individuals.
There are several species of flamingos, but all of them exhibit plumage with shades ranging from pink to white.
