In the case of many animal species, they guarantee their continued existence and help to protect biodiversity. A plea for zoos. Of eight million animal and plant species worldwide, one million are threatened with extinction Largest species extinction since the extinction of the dinosaurs Caused by humans Not every zoo is a zoo Every day, Continue reading
Given the current global crisis, which has seriously affected tourism and is also having dramatic consequences for some animals, Loro Parque Fundación has made a donation of 20,000 dollars to the Thai Elephant Alliance Association. This association is dedicated to the care of elephants that used to have a livelihood thanks to tourism and have now been left unprotected as a result of the COVID-19.

Loro Parque-Animal Embassy has celebrated this Thursday the premiere of a short film about the story of the orca Morgan on its social media channels, after it was selected by various international festivals and presented at more than 90 festivals around the world.
The animated film, directed by Marcos Martín Muñoz and produced by Capcub, not only narrates Morgan’s journey until she found her home at the renowned zoological park of Puerto de la Cruz in Tenerife but also seeks to raise awareness on the serious adverse consequences that underwater noise can produce on animals.
There is one question that poses a real challenge when talking about wild animals: how old is, for instance, a dolphin or an orca? Until recently, it was not at all easy to determine the age of live cetaceans in the wild, but new research, in which Loro Parque has participated, has managed to establish this data from the study of their DNA. Scientists involved in the project have developed an odontocete epigenetic aging clock which can be used for Continue reading
PETA insists, once again, on the need to free the orca Morgan and her calf Ula and they speak in all their publications that they both live in a prison. Now, in addition, they talk about Ula being very ill.
