Karpin Fauna

Our ultimate goal is to ensure that, in general, we are all more aware that animals and plants are living things must be respected.

Karpin Fauna is a shelter for wild animals. Furthermore, Karpin Abentura offers visitors the chance to enjoy while visiting different dinosaur themed areas.

Bizkaia Echological Park develops a great work of recuperation of the animals to get them integrated in the natural enviroment. In the installations of the park, in a plot of land with more than 20 hectares there is a great sample of the Iberian and European fauna: wolves, fallow deers, bears, lynxes, vultures, ferrets, deers, wild boars and a great group of birds; among them the main ones are the wading birds, and also birds of prey. Totally more than 50 species grow up in a natural enviroment.

The place, also known as El Karpin, is covered with local forests, fields, and exotic trees.

The installations have educative characteristhics, offering guided visits, educative programmes and exhibitions. They try to spread the values of biodiversity and the love for animals.
