On February 28 in 2008 the new Bioparc Valencia was opened. Bioparc has created a very true and accurate reconstruction of Africa’s wild life. Located in the Valencian ‘Cabecera’ park this ZOO was created based on a new technique that tries to introduce people to the natural habits of the wild animals. The animals live in the Bioparc as they would live in the wild, in groups of the same species in the same natural habitat, which is separated by natural barriers of rocks, rivers and bridges.
The Bioparc is committed to respect for the animals and focuses on promoting awareness about caring for the environment, as shown in several education programs which they offer.

- On the island of Madagascar, you will find seven different species of lemurs and a center devoted to explaining the processes of extinction, which in the seventeenth century took place on the island of Madagascar.
- The famous rock Kitum was reconstructed for the first time in the world, the Kitum has a length of 40 meters and a height of 8 meters. Here you can observe the herd of elephants.
