Loro Parque houses the largest parrot collection in the world ?about 4,000 – and is responsible for breeding some of the rarest of those birds for the management of the species. Earlier this year, a third Spix macaw chick hatched in the Loro Parque aviary. The Spix is ?ritically endangered?according to the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, and the last wild specimen was sighted in 2000.
The Loro Parque zoological grounds include other animal attractions, such as ?iger island,?a sea lion show, ?himpland,?the world? largest penguin exhibit, jaguars and ?rcaOcean,?the largest orca installation.
