Lonely Emu Loro Park
I may be being unfair here but, I visited the Loro Sexi Ornithological Park in Almuñécar in February 2022 and was extremely disappointed.
Caged parrots - Loro Park
The park claims to have 1,500 birds from 200 different species. At a push I saw perhaps 400 birds from maybe 4 dozen species. Many of the cages were empty. I am also not a great fan of keeping wild birds confined although I do accept that some element of confinement is necessary if the intention is to allow people to see them. The cages, particularly for the larger species, parrots, macaws and cockatoos on should be much larger.
Meerkat escape committee - Loro park
I was pleased I had visited; it was probably the only entertainment or distraction many of the birds have, peering at humans. A lone emu was definitely pleased to see me. Children will be enthralled by the antics of a group of meerkats tucked away in one corner of the park. I could imagine the leader, in the typical upright meerkat pose, organising his escape committee.
On a final, negative note. The park is not suitable for anybody with any infirmity. Some of the stepped paths are steep.
