Zooverein Wuppertal e.V. Aralandia

With the ‘Green Zoo 2020’ master plan, the Wuppertal Zoo has committed itself to ‘knowledge through experience’ and ‘transparency through information.’ The popular Macaws are considered a flagship species and promote in visitors a special interest in nature conservancy in Brazil. Through shifts in perspectives and elevations inside the aviary, and a view into the breeding station, Aralandia gives visitors a feel for the bird’s natural habitat and way of life. The Ara Discovery Gallery, located at the end of the circular route, presents the results of research conducted through the partnership between the zoo and the Loro Parque Foundation, an advocate for the preservation of endangered parrots. Aralandia also features a connecting flamingo aviary, which allows the birds to be kept in accordance with modern standards without cropping their wings.
