(3.3/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Faunist Park La Torbiera is a Biopark and consists of an area open to the public and a protected area for wildlife preservation. It was established in Agrate Conturbia, Piedmont, Italy in 1977 to preserve and study some animal species in danger of extinction.EnvironmentFaunistic Park La Torbiera is located in a border area between the Po Valley and the Prealps, characterized by a mild but damp climate, and plenty of small lakes. This is therefore a very favorable environment for the development of mires, which are born progressively by the accumulation of dead parts of vegetable on bottom of lakes. In wet soil, the oxygen deficiency prevents the oxidation processes and the complete decomposition of plants.The vegetable remains are transformed therefore only partially, becoming peat, and they collect on the bottom, making progressively decrease the depth of the basin. In this way, the plants of the shore which can be pushed towards the inside, reducing, until its demise, the surface of the water. The park, covering an area of 40 acres, provides shelter for many animal species. There are about 400 specimens relative to 130 wildlife species, mostly from the Palaearctic region.

  • Little park but did really well! Truly charming natural surroundings! Despite its small size there are many varieties of animals! A little Pearl!

  • At least once a year we make a visit because in this beautiful park you will always find new animal whose species is to be preserved: ocelots, Tigers, cheetahs, Lions, tapirs, desert cats, pelicans, etc. .. In addition, most of the staff is voluntary. Take a walk with your children, they will remain open-mouthed (and not only)

  • Very quiet place, where you can spend the whole day. Pets in cages and they're pretty close. Many qualities of rare animals that are not often seen.
