WelcomeSpormaggiore Animal Refuge Park offers all its visitors the unique opportunity to observe the brown bear at close quarters.
This is the largest mammal living in the Alps and has returned to populate the forests of Trentino thanks to a targeted re-introduction program.
Here, in a completely natural environment, you can admire three of them that live within an area of 7000 square meters.
A few years ago, the expansion of the entire Animal Refuge Park was launched; it will soon host other typical species of undoubted interest native to the Alps: the wolf and the lynx. The complex, which extends approximately 7000 square meters, has four artificial dens used by the bears for daytime shelter and wintering.
A video room seating approximately 20, allows visitors to view documentaries on the Adamello Brenta Natural Park and the brown bear.
Many large plants such as beech trees, red firs and larches, and bushy areas alternate with open areas and a small stream with pools and little waterfalls that recreate the bear’s typical environment.
From 1994 to date, Spormaggiore Animal Refuge Park has housed several bears from various zoos; currently, there are three (female bears): one female from Sardagna (TN), born in 1966 and named "Bel"(diminutive of Belfort), and two sisters born within the sanctuary of San Romedio in Val di Non in 1996, named Cleo and Cora.
