Zoological gardens should be an important source of knowledge and scientific activity, essential in many cases for the survival of biodiversity, conservation of species, especially those that are threatened and endangered, species and natural ecosystems, as many aspects of the biology of wild animals cannot be studied in their natural habitats, especially those species where the population is declining and individuals are hard to find and observe.
With these objectives, the Oasys MiniHollywood Research Department carries out its activities with the advice and coordination of the University of Murcia. See our research projects here.
