Amazon World has around 200 species of mammal, bird, reptile, insect, amphibian and fish. Their mission is to show visitors what is happening to the world's magnificent rainforest flora and fauna. As well as highlighting the difficulties faced in the wild they also hope to show the good work that is being done by organisations across the world.
Amazon World Zoo Park is a special kind of attraction you can learn about conservation and rainforests and come face to face with some of the worlds most unusual, beautiful and endangered creatures. Some you won't be able to see anywhere else in the UK or even Europe! Try to spot the many species of tropical bird flying freely through the rainforest above your head or count the crocodiles in the pond. Enjoy the displays and talks or just sit and watch the lemurs as they sunbathe and play.
Other points of interest is the jungle, Mayan temple, waterfall cascading into a pond, and birds involved in the falconry display.
Falconry displays and 'Meet the Animals' talks take place daily throughout the year. Their timetable of events are:
11am Penguin Talk
12.30 Falconry Display
2pm Meet the Animals
3.30pm Falconry Display (1st March-31st October only)
Amazon World may provide you with your own journey of discovery.

This page is a Quick Guide, the idea of Quick Guides is to allow very basic information and linking forward information to be added to the system rather than having to wait until a full location guide has been developed. It should therefore be considered a development stage rather than a finished objective. Once more information is known the objective is to create either a Location or Featured Location page which has two grids and far more information.
Please let us know any other information that we can add to the Grid(s) or page and any errors that you discover. Before making a long trip to any location it is always wise to double check the current information, websites like magazines may be correct at the time the information is written, but things change and it is of course impossible to double check all entries on a regular basis. If you have any good photographs that you feel would improve the illustration of this page then please let us have copies. In referring to this page it is helpful if you quote both the Page Ref and Topic or Section references from the Grid below. To print the planning grid select it then right click and print the selected area.
Please submit information on locations you discover so that this system continues to grow.
