Birdhouse Aralandia will be a new part of ZOO Wuppertal which already has a very nice and interesting collection of parrots. „To large walk-in aviary (which can be compared with the biggest facilities in Europe) breeding aviaries will be attached. In there, we will see Lear’s and Hyacinth Macaws. Together with other field project this is another step to support conservation of several critically endangered species and their habitats“, ZOO informed about this on its official website on the 18th March.
