Valencia's spectacular zoo, Bioparc, is organising a "Herd Race" fun run, this Sunday, encouraging adults and children to participate to promote healthy lifestyles and raise awareness of the need to conserve and protect nature.
The run costs just €5 per person if you are in a herd of 3 or more and all proceeds go to the park's charitable foundation. Full details can be found on their website here.
Opened in 2008, Bioparc is a must for families and animal lovers. Developed as a 'zoo-immersion' site, barriers are virtually invisible as they are created using rocks, rivers and bridges.
This allows visitors to feel almost a part of habitat of the animals, which come from in the heart of Africa. See leopards, lemurs, hyenas, lions, giraffes, gorillas, rhinos, elephants and more!
