Ingrid Visser visits Loro Parque

Last week Loro Parque received another visit of Free Morgan Foundation activists, led by Dr. Ingrid Visser. This visit was not previously announced to Loro Parque (as on earlier occasions) and was not motivated by any particular concern about the health or welfare of Morgan. Most likely the visit was motivated by the upcoming workshop “Assessment of welfare of marine mammal species in zoological parks” that will be held at Nuremberg zoo in a few days. This workshop will be Continue reading

Enough of false accusations against Loro Parque

The video published by The Dolphin Project on its website is a new attempt at manipulation through exaggeration and dramatization of a completely normal situation in which there is no problem for the animals. The video shows Morgan (within the medical pool) and Tekoa in the pool B interacting through the door. The interpretation that Morgan is suffering a panic attack is completely incorrect and malicious; all we see is that Morgan wants to open the door to access the Continue reading

Response to the petition of the Great Ape Project Spain (Proyecto Gran Simio España) about closing the Loro Parque orca show.

In recent weeks we have witnessed different requests made to Loro Parque about the orcas, from various organizations that claim to defend the rights of animals. These requests are not based on evidence but are based on assumptions about the lack of animal welfare that have never been verified. The case of the Great Ape Project Spain organization is even more embarrassing, because their accusations have been proven false on several occasions.   In May 2010 D. Pedro Pozas Terrados, Continue reading

The golden lion tamarin is endangered, its population has dropped by 50% in the last three generations.

In Loro Parque, we work in the breeding of the golden lion tamarin (Leontopithecus rosalia), an endangered primate species from Brazil. The male and female of our pair of golden lion tamarins came separately to Loro Parque between 2014 and 2015, and this is the only centre in the Canary Islands to house this species. Our male is from the Heidelberg Zoo, whereas our female tamarin came from the zoo of Copenhagen — both of them collaborate in the same Continue reading

Loro Parque Fundación project confirms that the Vinaceous-breasted Parrot is in danger of extinction

Found in Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina, the Vinaceous-breasted Parrot (Amazona vinacea) is a species of the Atlantic Forest, having a close association with Araucaria forests. Today those are degraded, reduced and fragmented, which is the main cause of the population decline of the parrot. BirdLife International has estimated the upper limit of the total wild population at 2,650 individuals, and places the Vinaceous-breasted Parrot in the category of endangered. The Loro Parque Fundación (LPF) supports various actions for the conservation Continue reading

A group of orcas pass near the coast of Gran Canaria

Today, we would like to start this post by mentioning an exciting moment that took place yesterday in Gran Canaria: a pod of orcas could be seen during the day.   There are evidences that this species visits the Canary Islands each year following tunas in their migration to the North. A recently published scientific study made in collaboration with Loro Parque has proven that these orcas have no genetic nor ecological kinship with the population observed in the Strait Continue reading

The largest of the anteaters subspecies is endangered and we must give our help!

Once again, and with our passion for Nature, we have reached out to a species that need the collaboration of all of us.

Don’t you know the family of anteaters that live Continue reading
