A place of 5.5 hectares that has large areas for the enclosures of around 1492 animals and 148 species of the ecosystem of the region. You can travel by car or bus from Bogota, the nearest main city. The journey will take you approximately 3-hour but you will be able to enjoy the landscape and many traditional food stops along the way. Within our facilities also operates the "home of passage" which is the Cormacarena Corporation's Attention and Valuation Center, where the animals that have been victims of the illegal traffic of fauna and run over on the tracks arrive; to which evaluations are made (medical, nutritional and biological), which according to the results allow to determine the final destination of them, prioritizing the relocation in their habitat. We must clarify that the Biopark does not extract fauna from the environment, does not have a hunting license (it does not contemplate processing it) and does not market with fauna either. The animals that are in the collection are animals that could not be released or relocated due to their affections.
