Rescuing endangered species
Be amazed by Colombia’s animal diversity. Located in the town of Cota, Bioparque la Reserva offers you and your family the opportunity to be surprised again and again on a tour where you get a chance to admire the beauty and majesty of many different animal species.
It all started in 2008 when a group of biologists that aimed to improve the quality of life for wild animals that were being illegally trafficked, opened their doors to the public. The Bioparque´s purpose is to be an animal sanctuary and not a zoo in the traditional sense. The main idea here is to make visitors aware of the importance of protecting the habitats for Colombian wildlife.
One of the biggest stars in this place is the Mountain Coati (a.k.a. the phantom of the Andes) which is a species from the Andean forests that was thought to be extinct because there weren't sightings of it, in the wild, for quite some time. One specimen was rescued from poachers in 2009 and was brought to the reserve. And now is part of an amazing educational exhibit along with its offspring!
Professional biologists and our expert bilingual guides answer your questions as you walk through six different reproductions of Colombian ecosystems. You could also learn about the terrible effects that illegal wild animal trafficking has on endangered species but also about projects like the protection of the Majuy hill that aim to protect wildlife habitats. Enjoy observing birds of prey, the Mountain Coati, and other animals exhibited before it is OK for some of them to be released to the wild.
At all times during this adventure, you will have available a safe and comfortable private transport that will take you to the reserve and back. You may want to enjoy a delicious lunch in one of the countryside restaurants around the park.
