Spaces in the Zoo
The Bird Flying Dome is a large oval-based dome where different bird species inhabiting swamp areas can be observed. The combination of water zones and grasslands and the different kinds of vegetation in the facilities, make the perfect environment for the breeding of several native species, that are later reintroduced to Catalan natural parks. Thus, the Zoo contributes to the recovery of endangered species that, in some cases, had disappeared years ago from the areas where now are being reintroduced.
The facility was built on 1985 with the support of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) of the Nature Conservation Institute (ICONA).
