By | 13 October, 2021 | 0 comments

If you want a unique experience where you can get up close and personal with stunning nature, Oasis Wildlife Fuerteventura is the place for you. From camels, lemurs, sea lions, giraffes and elephants to a botanical garden with a bird hide, palmetum and native plant species nature reserve.

At the Oasis Park Zoo, vets, biologists, botanists, researchers and educators work tirelessly to train and teach people to encourage them to have respect and empathy for their resident animal and plant species.

In this post we’ll take a look at all the treats nature has in store for you at the Oasis Wildlife Fuerteventura zoo and nature reserve. Don’t miss a word!


Live shows with fascinating living beasts

When you visit, the fun – and educational – displays featuring sea lions, parrots, cold-blooded animals and birds of prey from around the world are a must. You’ll learn about how they behave in the wild and what they need, so you can be sure you do your bit to care for their habitats.

All staff working at the zoo are driven by the same mission: to protect the most vulnerable animals and plants and help ensure the survival of thousands of species in danger of extinction. And as part of this mission, they take part in a number of different global conservation projects.

The park’s mission

Oasis Wildlife Fuerteventura works on the protection and reintroduction of animals to the wild. They give animals a second chance, improving their quality of life and always keeping a focus on animal science. At present, it’s collaborating with 30 national and international organisations and 24 ex situ (off-site) conservation programmes, working on reintroducing 100 animals into their natural habitats, and rescuing 200 animals per year.
It also serves as a rescue and recovery centre for species that have been illegally trafficked, mistreated or are unwanted pets. They’re treated at the Chekipa Hospital, designed for all animals in the centre from small reptiles to large mammals. It has its own radiology, surgery, laboratory and pharmacy departments.


How’s your appetite? Oasis restaurants serve sustainability with every dish!

Creamy stone bass croquettes, octopus, prawn and caramelised onion stew, beef Wellington with mashed potatoes… we could go on. You’ll find a whole host of delights at Oasis Wildlife. Take your pick from restaurants, a picnic area and various kiosks and vending machines you’ll find dotted around the complex. 
The park’s restaurants – Oasis, Liones Marinos, Sabana and Patio Majorero – all serve a diverse range of local dishes from the Canary Islands. They also source sustainable, seasonal produce, doing their bit to boost the island’s economy. Much of it is produced in-house, which also makes it more sustainable and respectful of nature.
