Loro Parque was honoured, this Wednesday April 24, by the Association of Hemophilia (Ahete), in the XIII Canary Islands Hemophilia ‘Marcos Gutierrez’ Awards ceremony.
The Company was unanimously chosen to receive the award in the business category for its over 15 years of collaboration with the various activities carried out by this non-profit association specialising in the large haemophilia family. Over the years, the Parque has helped Ahete through its mission of social integration and improving the quality of life of those affected by haemophilia or other congenital, carrier and family coagulopathies in the province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
The event held in commemoration of World Haemophilia Day on April 17 was attended by the president of Loro Parque Wolfgang Kiessling who received this distinction at a ceremony held in the Salon Noble of the Tenerife Cabildo building.
Through these collaborations with non-profit associations, Loro Parque, recognised as the best zoo in the world, strengthens its commitment to Canarian society. In this case, the company has supported the development and improvement of the quality of life of many people via different sponsorships and initiatives for over 15 years.
The trajectory of Loro Parque has been recognised on many occasions. It is one of the most respected zoological institutions in the world for its exceptional beauty, the excellence of its facilities and its respect for nature. The Parque has been distinguished for two consecutive years as the best on the planet, according to TripAdvisor users. This is because with almost 50 million visitors who have visited its facilities since its opening in 1972, the Parque continues in its firm commitment to the protection of different species, through a wide variety of projects in which The Loro Parque Foundation also participates.
