Conceived with the purpose of educating, promoting cultural and scientific knowledge, and for recreation, it has become one of Cantabria's most popular tourist attractions. It is home to about 100 animal species from the five continents, which can be seen practically in the wild, as they are housed in large areas in completely natural settings.
