It is an entire new concept of a park, joining two ideas : Ecotourism and environmental preservation. The total park area is 16,50 Ha, where 4 ha are the facilities and the huge bird cages, the other 12,50 are an environment preserved area.
The Birds Park is 8 km away from downtown ( Foz do Iguaçu) , and from 800 meters from the park entrance it is possible to through a 800 meters track through the woods walking through the huge bird cages completely integrated to the forest , normally all the visitors get surprised to realize that it is possible to get into these huge bird cages , getting really close to all the birds. Inside these bird cages it is possible to see native birds, incredibly colorful birds fly about and land close to the visitors. The birds habitat are 630 square meters e 8 meters high, so they do not feel “ caged” .
There are more than 200 species of birds all around the park area ; such as macaws, hummingbirds , toucans, hawks, Araras ( a typical Brazilian bird) and even the colorful flamingo’s.
The veterinarians that are responsible for the park have developed a new way to make the birds have a normal reproductive life when caged.
The visitor can also have a view at some reptiles at a big water tank , similar to a small lake; there are some fishes, snakes, alligators, turtles and some other reptiles.
It is open from 9:00 AM to 5:30 AM
