Karpin Fauna

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

Karpin Fauna is a wildlife refuge centre for animals that cannot be returned to their natural habitat.

Bizkaia Ecological Park develops a great work of recuperation of the animals to get them integrated in the natural environment. 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 environment.

The place, also known as El Karpin, is covered with local forests, fields, and exotic trees. The
installations have educative characteristics, offering guided visits, educative programmes, and exhibitions. They try to spread the values of biodiversity and the love for animals.
