By international standards Kula Eco Park, on the Fiji Island of Viti Levu, is a small, often overlooked wild life facility. But we survive by being the best we can be at what we do – and what we do is help preserve the incredibly diverse natural heritage of these beautiful Fiji Islands. Founded in 1997 from the ruins of a bankrupt ‘bird park’, the modern Kula Eco Park is:
- A nature walk through acres of natural forest with elevated boardwalks allowing exploration, from the valley floor to the forest canopy.
- The only Captive Breeding facility in Fiji for endangered Fiji indigenous species.
- A show place for Fiji’s spectacular bird, reptile & marine life.
- The only Free Hands-On Environmental Education Center for Fiji’s school children.
Kula Eco Park is a 28 acre property set in 3 valleys, with 12 acres open to visitors. Huge walk-through enclosures put the visitor inside the habitats of our resident parrots, doves, water birds & reptiles. Marine displays of Ocean turtles, soft coral and tropical fish provide a glimpse of the spectacular marine world that surrounds the 300+ Islands of Fiji.
With almost a kilometer of wooden walkways, bridges and rest areas, the park provides our visitors with the opportunity to experience the ‘wild side’ of Fiji in comfortable and safe surroundings. Abundant signage explains the displays and our dedicated staff are on hand to answer any questions you may have.
Kula Eco Park is privately owned but partners with many national and international organizations in the furtherance of our objectives in captive breeding and education. Our partners and associates include:
- The National Trust for Fiji Islands
- The Zoo and Aquarium Association of Australia & New Zealand
- Taronga Zoo, Sydney, Australia
- San Diego Wildlife Park, California, USA
- The Parks Board of New South Wales, Australia
- Honorary Associate of the Royal Zoological Society of South Australia
