Inaugurated in 1968, Parco Zoo Falconara covers an aera of 60,000 sqm and is located on a hill in Falconara Marittima, a town a few kilometers from Ancona.
It is committed to the conservation of endangered species and to promoting knowledge of biodiversity through the of education and research programmes. The Park also plays an important role in raising awareness.
An educational centre for schools and families, it is a place where children and adults can meet animals, get to know them and learn how to protect them.
Since the 1980s, the park has been a member of the Italian Union of Zoos and Aquariums (UIZA), which has 17 members and aims to promote the idea of zoological structures in Italy as a tool for conservation, naturalistic-environmental education and scientific research.
Since 2006, Parco Zoo Falconara has also been part of EAZA, the association that brings the best zoos and aquariums in Europe together and develops controlled breeding programmes, promoting collaboration between members for scientific research and conservation projects in nature.
