The Barcelona Zoo
Situated in the green lung of the historic old Barcelona, inside the Ciutadella Park, the Barcelona Zoo first opened in 1892. Its facilities faithfully reproduce the natural habitat of the animal species that live there.
Barcelona Zoo focuses its activities on three core themes: the dissemination of information, research and the protection of animal species in danger of extinction. The zoo is home to 4.000 animals from over 400 species including the descendants of the albino gorilla Snowflake, dolphins, tropical birds and reptiles.
Barcelona Zoo offers a whole host of activities and services which make it the perfect day out for all the family: restaurants, bars, pony rides, miniature railway, electric cars, shop, picnic areas. Βarcelona Zoo hosts an extensive selection of native flora. Trees are part of the continents’ ecosystems and play a very important role in protecting the environment. Trees are responsible for providing part of the oxygen that we breathe and eliminating the carbon dioxide that causes global warming. They also help to prevent soil erosion, as their roots form a network that holds the land together and prevents the land from moving when it rains. In addition, they provide homes and food for numerous animal species.Trees can be classified as deciduous and evergreen. Deciduous trees are trees that completely lose their leaves during a part of the year, such as the chestnut, oak, mulberry and elm. By contrast, evergreen trees keep their green leaves throughout the year, as they are constantly renewed. Examples include the Holm oak, pine, fir, cypress and olive.Over time human beings have used trees for their needs: they have eaten their fruits, extracted their wood, and obtained natural remedies and medicines, etc. from them.
In Barcelona zoo, each animal has its own area, created in such a way as to make the animal feel at home. These are some of the most notable facilities that you can enjoy on your visit to the park. The Zoo is open every day of the year. All informations on the Barcelona Zoo official webpage.
