Loro Parque has, this Friday, August 2, presented the results of the Travellers’ Choice TripAdvisor award, where Siam Park was chosen as the best water park in the world for the sixth consecutive year.  At the same time, the progress of The Loro Parque Foundation projects and the strategies for the elimination of single-use plastic in all the Company’s facilities have been disclosed.

The event, held at the Real Casino de Tenerife, was attended by the President of the Loro Parque Company Wolfgang Kiessling, the Vice-President of the Company, President of Siam Park and the Loro Parque Foundation Christoph Kiessling, the Director of the Loro Parque Foundation Dr. Javier Almunia and the Scientific Director of the Foundation Rafael Zamora.

On the recognition of Siam Park, President Christoph Kiessling revealed that “the keys to success” are “apart from transmitting the philosophy of Loro Parque, in terms of the service, friendliness, smiles and professionalism of the team, are being good value for money and using renewable energy properly”.

As far as environmental conservation projects are concerned, the President of Loro Parque stressed that “a commitment has been made to the Canary Islands”.  Therefore, one million euros has been given to the CanBio project, in collaboration with the Canary Islands Government which has contributed another million, for research into climate change in the sea and ocean acidification and its effects on marine biodiversity in the Canary Islands and Macaronesia, especially on cetaceans, turtles, sharks and rays.

Through this project, which is scheduled to be carried out over four years, they aim to help protect the animals that live in this space and be an example for other regions, explained the Director of The Loro Parque Foundation Javier Almunia.

The occasion also served to announce that the company has eliminated the use of more than 30 tons of single-use plastic and has declared that they aspire to continue promoting the search for solutions to keep the oceans cleaner.

“We must not forget that we can’t live without plastic” so “we can only reduce its use where we have the capacity to act” emphasised the Company President Wolfgang Kiessling.

The representatives of Loro Parque, recognised as the best zoo in the world, have thus outlined their objective of making citizens aware of the environmental problems faced by the oceans and the different species that inhabit them.
