    We present ourselves:

    ZOO KOKI (Parque zoológico y botánico) is born of the illusion and the passion for fauna and flora. Initially we were a small private collection dedicated to the importation of animals and over time we have become a modest zoo center with high hopes. We are aware of the basic pillars of a modern zoo EDUCATION, RECREATION, CONSERVATION and RESEARCH and so we want to move forward.

    We are in Val de Santo Domingo a town 38 km from Toledo. ¿Cómo llegar?

    We are a Foundation. The ZOO KOKI foundation has as its main mission to help the conservation of wild fauna and flora. It complements its work with other zoos, institutions, university centers and scientists. Our programs Programas de la fundación – .:: ZOO KOKI::. Parque zoológico y botánico | Fundación ZOO KOKI

    Our interest is to finish some enclosures and to be able to participate in AIZA in the next 2 years (max).

    We have 8 Species program (ESB/ESB and others...): Programas: EEP y ESB – .:: ZOO KOKI::. Parque zoológico y botánico | Fundación ZOO KOKI

    Zoological Collection: We currently have about 150 species of animals. Mainly birds and mammals. In the future (We want everything to go well) we would like to reach 300. Fauna – .:: ZOO KOKI::. Parque zoológico y botánico | Fundación ZOO KOKI

    We are a modest zoo. With many projects in mind and we want to advance in a correct way and share experiences and collaborations with all zoological environment.

    Botanical garden:
    We currently have more than 300 species of plants, distributed throughout the park, many of them planted in recent years. And we are preparing the construction of a cactarium.

    We currently have 30 species of pheasants in the zoo (not all in exposition). It is one of our little treasures. www.faisanesdelmundo.com is one of the projects that the foundation has available for your knowledge

    If you want to know us these are the areas of the park (Keep expanding so you can change) Zonas – .:: ZOO KOKI::. Parque zoológico y botánico | Fundación ZOO KOKI

    Tierra de Felinos

    El Aviario

    This is the main aviary. It has been built under the old pheasant fly, it has needed more than 3 years of work and care. Today, it houses more than 60 species of trees and shrubs and about 20 species of birds.

    The new cages for injured birds of prey include golden eagle, griffon vulture, black kite, booted eagle, eagle-owl (offshow they have black-shouldered kite, common buzzard, bahari peregrine falcon, barn owl and short-eared owl)

    2020-beginning 2021 has been very busy for this small great zoo

    This summer has arrived from Denmark one male black jaguar christened Felix

    Also a female of european lynx called "Pyrene" arrived from Parque faunistico Lacuniacha

    They have received more pairs from Lophura edwardsi, making a count of two "edwardsi" and two "hatinhensis", one of the biggest group in Europe (they are expecting too another pair)

    One pair of Polyplectron napoleonis have arrived from Bioparc Fuengirola and another pair of Polyplectron bicalcaratum arrived from private breeders

    The area dedicated to owls have now the most complete collection of iberian species:

    - Bubo bubo hispanus
    - Bubo virginianus
    - Strix aluco
    - Otus scops
    - Asio flammeus
    - Athene noctua
    - Tyto alba

    The only species they don't have now is Long-eared owl Asio otus

    This winter two great rare species arrived: Alectoris philbyi and one male Pucrasia macrolopha castanea for the bachellor female

    Let's hope that for spring all the pheasants cages will be finished and they will can add to the on show area all the raptors that now are off show
