Bioparc Valencia is located inside the Parque de Cabecera (Cabecera Park). It is a mixture between a zoo and a safari park. It does not look like the common zoos because here you can see the animals walking freely in an environment, which re-enacts the nature to the maximum. They aren’t locked inside cells, and they walk freely on the territory between wide and spacious barrages, separated from rocks, greenery and water basins.
What is exactly Bioparc Valencia like?
This is a new generation zoo, intended to be a part of the philosophy of the Immersion Zoo, where visitors are as close as possible to the natural environment of the animals. It was initially created with the aim for the visitors to feel inspired and engaged with the issues, surrounding the preservation of the animals and to understand the need for animal preservation and protection, and the protection of the environment where they live.
Bioparc Valencia Geographic Areas
The Bioparc has been divided into three major areas that represent geographic areas where the animals are selected from – Savana, Madagascar and Equatorial Africa.
The first area you will see is Madagascar. This is the home of the lemurs, the beautiful pink flamingos and the Madagascar cat-like viverra, popularly known as Fossa.
The Equatorial Forest
After you see Madagascar, you will get to the area of the Equatorial forest, which will offer you gorgeous landscapes, tunnels and bridges that resemble fallen trees, covering the African river. This is the ecosystem with the largest biodiversity in the world. Here you can see chimpanzees, gorillas, leopards, a couple of antelopes and many others. Of course, there are animals such as snakes, fish and crocodiles, which you can observe through the glass barrier.
The African Savanna
In the African savanna can be found lions, giraffes, rhinos and antelopes. Aside from that, you will see buffalos, leopards and elephant herds, walking in the background of amazing scenery, full of greenery that reinforces the acclimatisation of the animals.
The park protects the saving of the environment and participates in programs for the breeding of birds, which are threatened by extinction. Also, more than 95 per cent of the water which is used is being recycled, and for generating energy and for water heating are used solar panels in the entire zoo.
