Some of the specimens that have been incorporated into the exhibition have arrived directly from Australia, and others have been born in the breeding center of the Loro Parque Fundación, where a large part of the specimens that make up the largest stock of species and subspecies of parrots are found. that exists in the world.
The installation, which is specially prepared for cockatoos, is a free flight aviary with great visibility to observe the activity of these majestic birds and allows visitors to see the specimens fly in their environment, while enjoying enrichments with trunks, eucalyptus and other elements that keep them physically and psychologically active, as well as food from their country of origin.
