Oasis Park, on the island of Fuerteventura, comprises a botanical garden with educational exhibitions, a zoological park with small and large animals, birds and reptiles and a collection of plants endemic to the island. It covers 80 hectares of land, has over 6000 plant species, and the largest collection of cacti and succulents in Europe.
The Director, Dr Stephan Scholz, is actively involved in conservation and preservation, especially of endemic species, and writing scientific papers including those on invasive species.
The plantings are excellent simply because they all look so natural.
If you are on Fuerteventura then a visit to Oasis Park is a must. I’m sure that Dr Scholz will give you a warm welcome.
