Ensuring the welfare of all animals, the Malaga Park team keep a record of temperatures to make sure that the animals are being best catered for against the elements. Over 200 species’ habitats need to be changed during these cold weeks and the Zoology team know the exact biology and requirements for each one.

From the hippos and crocodiles having their water temperature regulated to keep them warm and even going as far as to making the animals vegetable broths, infusions and vitamin supplements to reinforce their defences against the cold. The Bioparc animals will be safe and sound this winter.
