    In 1994 Loro Parque founded Loro Parque Fundación, an international foundation member of IUCN set up to highlight the need for conservation of nature and the environment. The foundation has carried out 82 conservation projects in 28 countries throughout the world, of which 31 keep being active with approximately 150 persons working daily for the conservation of nature. Since its creation they have spent more than $10,000,000 in such projects.

     

    The foundation is particularly active in conserving the most endangered parrot species in the world, both with captive breeding (such as with the critically endangered Spix's Macaw) and field projects as well (such as with the equally critically endangered Indigo-winged Parrot).
