Once again this year, we continue with our project for primary school students ‘Experts in Animal Welfare’, which intends to develop a deeper sense of respect and responsibility in students towards the animal care. This week we have visited the school ‘Los Menceyes’ in Añaza and offered 50 entrance tickets that Loro Parque grants to every school that takes part in the project. They have come to visit our facilities and could verify first hand our strong commitment to animal welfare.Image attachmentImage attachment

Loro Parque and Loro Parque Fundación are proud to announce Marcia Weinzettle as speaker for the IX International Parrot Convention which will take place in Tenerife in September 2018.

Marcia has a post-graduate degree in Wildlife Biology. She worked 26 years in ex-situ reproduction in Brazil, prioritizing always research and improvement of reproductive techniques. She has been in charge of the management of zoos and of the most important breeding centers of psittacines in Brazil where she has obtained optimal results that have been published in various media.

In September 2016 she accepted the invitation of Loro Parque and Loro Parque Fundación to be their bird keeper. Since then she has adapted the breeding methodology to the current reality. She assures that the development, adaptation and application of specific methodology for each breeding situation and species, are the main way to obtain the expected results.

Today she is the consultant of the Reproductive Management Program in controlled environments of the Lears Macaw (Anodorhynchus leari). It is a threatened and an endemic species to Brazil with which, the Loro Parque Fundación, has achieved an extraordinary breeding result thanks to the knowledge in optimizing the reproductive management of this and other species in similar situations.

Marcia Weinzettl has lectured in different parts of the world showing her extensive knowledge of complex tropical psittacid species of South America, outstanding among which is the management of the Hyacinth macaws (Anodorhynchus hyacinthinus) or the wonderful Golden conure (Guaruba guarouba) with which she obtained a relevant number of chicks.

Marcia is undoubtedly one of the international references who will provide the convention participants with valuable information.

Marcia is undoubtedly a reference in the international psittacidae world, enabling congress participants to expand and share their knowledge.

More speakers will be announced soon.
