Here's a crazy alternate history project regarding the Barcelona Zoo; an alternative where long-closed parks reopen and the state of this matter is generally much better off than in our present timeline. In 1983, the privately run Rioleón Safari gave the Barcelona Zoo Ulysses the killer whale, and from that, negociations were brought forth to have both these institutions under the same organism, inspired by the Zoological Society of London and the Wildlife Conservation Society of New York. The agreement was set, with one of the prerogatives being that each center would exclusively house certain species. Under this one organism, various different parks joined in, each with their own unique repertoire of species, each specialized in a specific area: Zoo de Barcelona (joined 1983): Primates, reptiles, rainforest-dwelling mammals Rioleón Safari (joined 1983): Large, plains-dwelling mammals Parc de les Aus (joined 1985): Birds (except raptors and seabirds) Aquarium Barcelona (built 1995): Fish Parc animal de Sobrestany (joined circa 1995): European animals Butterfly Park Empuriabrava (joined circa 200): Insects Cim d'Aguiles (joined circa 2000): Raptors Marineland Catalunya (joined circa 2000): Marine mammals and seabirds Cosmocaixa (built 2004): Amazon rainforest While controversies still abound, the general state of these parks is that of mutual success and sustainability. Combined memberships can be bought, and bus services to take people from the Barcelona Zoo to the other centers would run in the weekends, back and forth at least twice a day. Maps of the four most changed parks will be uploaded to further demonstrate how this paralel reality would be.
