Parco Zoo Punta Verde
Usually I don't like zoos very much (I don't like the idea of animals in cages). This one is special. It is the zoo of Lignano, a town on the Adriatic coast about 25 km from Concordia.
The Parco Zoo Punta Verde is first of all a research site and its mission is education and instruction. Animals are not in cages but free, in fenced places. For example, monkyes "own" a whole island, free to jump from tree to tree. Crocodiles have many canals and some small ilsands to rest and so on.
