Overview
More
A new conception of zoo as "conservation centre" is very different from the old idea of "living museum" as a collecting place with the mere purpose to display exotic animals coming from the whole world without a global strategy. Bioparco di Sicilia is constantly growing in this sense. It complies with the laws which regulate the keeping of animals in modern zoological gardens. Conservation, through high standards of care of each species in the zoological garden, and by taking part in in situ and ex situ conservation programmes; research, through the cooperation with scientific organizations and universities. In order to strengthen its role in the conservation of biodiversity and to protect endangered species, Bioparco di Sicilia takes part in training programs with other zoological gardens.

At under 20 euros for two adults and a baby, this is well worth a visit. The dinosaurs were a particular highlight as they were very well made. The Tyrannosaurus Rex was particularly dramatic! If you intend on paying by card, make sure that you...More
