Alameda Wildlife Conservation Park, Gibraltar
(4/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
The Alameda Wildlife Conservation Park is a small wildlife park situated in the Botanic Gardens in Gibraltar.HistoryThe Alameda Wildlife Conservation Park began in 1994 as a collection of parrots, tortoises and monkeys all confiscated from illegal traders who were passing through Gibraltar. The local Customs authorities handed these animals to the Gibraltar Ornithological and Natural History Society (GONHS).In 1996 the Alameda Miniature Golf Course was cleared after many years of neglect and modified into a small conservation park, again entirely through volunteer help.TodayAlthough the main purpose of the park was to house confiscated animals, it became apparent that, if finished properly, it could also be open to the public to make people aware not only about illegal animal trade but also about local wildlife conservation. The park has also become important for the care of native species that are considered for future re-introduction to the Upper Rock Nature Reserve, such as the red fox, the raven and the Barbary partridge.The park has become an important educational resource for local schools, helping to raise awareness of not only the rich local biodiversity but also of wider conservation issues.

  • Not worth the time and money spent. Animals on the same little monkeys can be viewed for free on the mountain itself.

  • This is one place I recommend anyone to visit. Go through the Botanical Gardens, which are also a must to see, as they lead into the conservation park. You will learn a lot about illegal trade in anim...  more »
