On April 22, Oasys MiniHollywood theme park participated in the AmBioBlitz event, the biodiversity marathon held at the University of Almería.
The Departments of Education and Conservation of Oasys MiniHollywood Park, as well as the Green Committee of Senator Hotels & Resorts were present at this event holding a workshop on the Eremita Project, which promotes the conservation and captive breeding of these endangered birds due to the action of man and the destruction of its natural habitat.
The university campus hosted one of the largest science events in the province, where CECOUAL, in collaboration with different researchers, environmental professionals, students, as well as Oasys MiniHollywood tried to teach the public about the different ecosystems and their species.
In the Oasys MiniHollywood workshop, called ¨Eremita Ibis”, the different stages of the captive breeding process of these birds were shown, from the incubation of the eggs, the feeding of the chicks —with black clothing and a hat that imitates the form of the parents—, until the process of acclimatization to freedom and release into the wild.
It had great participation and the students were able to see the entire process summarized in the educational videos that showed the entire development process, from juveniles to adults, which are released into the wild in Barbate. All of that was explained by Javier Romera, veterinarian and breeding coordinator of Captive Bald Ibis Project at Oasys MiniHollywood Park.
The students learned to differentiate the foods necessary for the correct development of the birds, as well as the large amount of feed and insects they need throughout their life cycle, from chicks to juvenile and finally adults prepared for reproduction.
Like every year, the theme park participated in the AmBioBlitz event.
Once again, Oasys MiniHollywood participates in the cultural and educational development of the province of Almería
