A must see in Foz Do Iguacu, Brazil
Brazilian Bird Park
Entrance into the largest bird park in Latin America is located next to the Iguacu National Park and entrance to the Brazilian side of the Iguazu falls. The huge bird enclosures allow for close contact with amazing birds from all over the world. As you walk along the trail, you will be greeted by blue macaws, parrots and toucans that play freely. In each enclosure there are signs containing the species' scientific names and areas of origin. While encouraging love and knowledge of all birds is the goal of this aviary, the park also is working diligently to increase reproduction among some of the endangered species.
The park hosts more than 1000 birds from 150 species, many of them threatened by extinction. A lot of the animals are endemic from the Iguassu National Park and provide a rare show of chirping and colors. All animals displayed come from either zoos, breeders authorized by IBAMA (Brazilian Institute of Natural Resources Protection), or from rehabilitation.
You will witness rare and colourful birds fly in the huge aviaries which have been built to blend in with the humid subtropical florest. Visitors are able to enter these aviaries and view the birds at close quarters. You will not only see birds, but also alligators, anacondas, pythons, marmosets and butterflies.
The Bird Park was founded in 1994 by Dennis and Anna Croukamp. They found in Foz do Iguaçu an ideal place to realize their dream: to create a theme park dedicated to wild life conservation. The park was constructed with the intention of offering ideal breeding conditions for birds, and at the same time guaranteeing the preservation of 16 hectares of native forest. Modern techniques and careful environmental planning were applied in the design of each aviary. The Bird Park is now internationally recognized as a result of the work of its experienced technical and administration teams.
The Green Toad Bus is proud to support this project!
The Bird Park is open daily from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm.
