Alameda Wildlife Park
The Alameda Wildlife Conservation Park is a small but lively zoo in the Botanical Gardens that is home to a variety of animals. It was created in order to protect animals from illegal poachers who were endangering the rare local wildlife. After providing a home for an increasing number of species, the small reserve was turned into a zoo so that the public and tourists could learn about local animals and the importance of preservation. Head to the AWCP to see some of the cutest and most colourful creatures in all of Gibraltar. You can snap pictures of parrots or take a selfie with a monkey. This is a perfect activity for the whole family; the kids will love exploring the park to see all the amazing animals.
Nestled in the beautiful Alameda Botanic Gardens, the AWCP is home to a collection of both exotic and native species. The AWCP is the only Wildlife Park in Gibraltar. We care for exotic animals confiscated by Gibraltar customs, unwanted exotic pets and animals such as the Cotton-topped tamarin, on loan from international Zoos, to raise awareness of important endangered species through conservation education. An essential role of the park is the conservation of threatened species. Partaking in international conservation projects supporting species in the wild. Through selected captive breeding programmes, we also hope to play an important part in the international effort to conserve rare and endangered species. Visit Gibraltar.
