The BioParc Valencia is a new kind of zoo that employs the concept of zoo-immersion where the boundaries of the enclosures are hidden so that visitors can be more immersed in the wild habitats of the animals at the park. Dedicated to the conservation of animals, BioParc Valencia participates in several captive breeding programs for endangered species. Focusing on its 3 main values of conservation, education and sustainability, the park is home to some great apes including coast gorillas, which are endangered species, and chimpanzees as well as other monkeys.
There is also a huge variety of frogs and toads in the World of Amphibians such as the tiny red and white, stripy ghost poison frog and the huge African bull frogs, and an amphitheatre for 1,500 people where you can watch some of Africa's most spectacular birds of prey in action. Don't miss the Cave of Kitum, an impressive artificial cave with lakes that is home to hippos, crocodiles from the Nile, and African soft shell turtles. The park also grows lots of African plant and tree species and you can walk through the biomes housing habitats from the savannah, the forests of Madagascar, and Equatorial Africa.
