Loro Parque Fundacion-LPF Charity Profile
The Loro Parque Fundación (LPF) is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation legally registered with the Ministry of Education and Science of the Government of Spain since 1994. It operates on an international basis to promote the conservation of parrots and their habitats.
It has its headquarters at Loro Parque, a first class zoological collection based on the island of Tenerife, in the Canary Islands (Spain). The Loro Parque Fundación focuses on parrots, for several good reasons. Parrots are found throughout the different tropical regions, where biodiversity is highest and where environmental destruction is at its greatest. No other group of birds contains such a high number of threatened species. Moreover, because of their beautiful colours and appealing behaviour, parrots can be very effective "flagships" in increasing support from local rural communities and attracting vital aid necessary for environmental and economic improvements.
