|Loro Park is dedicated to parrots protecting endangered types of parrots around the world. They have the largest collection of parrots and have a big breeding programme. We saw a show with trained parrots and lots of different kinds of parrots in cages around the park. Some parrots have escaped but have stayed in the park and nest in the palm trees.|
|There are lots of other attractions in Loro Park. This is the dolphin show.|
|The trainer waterskiing on 2 dolphins while a third stands on its tail in front of him.|
|A rather bad-tempered pelican.|
|An African crowned crane. There were other cranes and 2 kinds of flamingos.|
|The trained seal show was lots of fun.|
|There was a lovely display of many kinds of orchids.|
|There is a penguin house with
several different kinds of penguins including emperor and Adelaide penguins.
We bought Rory this stuffed penguin. The penguins live at Antarctic temperatures
and it even snows regularly on them. Unfortunately it was a bit dim for
my camera and flah photos were not allowed because it disturbs the birds.
The Aquarium with a tunnel so you could watch the fish from below was super but also too dark to photograph.
|As I said, they do a lot of work to protect endangered species. They have a group of mountain gorillas. This one posed nicely for the camera.|
