Expansion at Bioparc

Bioparc in Fuengirola has embarked on an expansion plan which will see the facility hosting new, and often endangered species. From the spring, the large and venomous Komodo dragons will be just one of the new species at the park.

The new area will be around 2,000 square metres and is being constructed on the same principle as the rest of the park, namely zoo-immersion. The habitat is kept as close as possible to the original ‘natural’ surroundings of the animals.

Bioparc participates in a number of valuable breeding programmes, over twenty, for endangered species and has achieved successful results with, amongst others, lemurs, the Bornean orangutan and the pygmy hippopotamus.

Further expansion is planned for the future, despite the financial crisis.
