Do you know what Biopark, Valencia is?
Located on the east coast of Spain, just 300km away from Barcelona, Valencia is the third biggest city in Spain. This exciting city is also home to the best zoo in Europe. Valencia’s Biopark though is not your typical zoo. You won’t find any cages there, because the new concept this park is running (called zoo-immersion) wants to make the guests feel like they are really in Africa. And in Africa, the animals are not in cages.
Covering ground of over 100,000 square meters, a trip inside the park feels more like a safari than a trip to the zoo. I’m not a big fan of zoos in general. The whole idea of keeping animals imprison just to entertain humans is repelling to me. However, the animals inside Biopark, Valencia are born in captivity, and they can’t survive on their own in the wild.
Even though they may live a boring life – they are well-fed, well-taken care of, and serve a purpose to educate the next human generation about the importance of preserving the animals on our planet. Because, like the caretakers in the Biopark like to say -” We protect what we love and we love what we can understand.”
From lemurs walking freely among people to Rhinos taking an afternoon nap, no matter what your age is, I can guarantee, you will enjoy Biopark, Valencia.
