Wildlife World is China’s first national-level wildlife eco-tourism park in the western region approved by the National Forestry and Grassland Administration & National Park Administration in 2000. As one of the largest eco-tourism parks in China, it is also currently the largest domestic wildlife protection, domestication, and breeding, eco-tourism, science education, animal rescue, and recreation. Besides, it is China’s first wildlife world park to allow visitors to drive their own cars inside the park to feel nature.
In the wild animal world, which ranks among the top three in the country, there are more than 430 species of nearly 30,000 rare birds and exotic animals on five continents. At the same time, it has the first domestic scatter area for gold tigers, stripeless tigers, and white tigers, as well as the first domestic scatter area for Australian animals and the most introduced African animal distribution area in China. Among them, there are more than 10,000 animals of 260 species in Appendix I and II of international conventions and national key protected animals. There are more than 30 species of extremely rare wild animals.
The entire wildlife world is divided into a pedestrian area and a vehicle dealer area. Each area is equipped with graphic animal science explanation boards or TV video science introductions. The vehicle dealer area adopts the mode of taking a sightseeing bus into the park, passing through the African wilderness and Europe. The four major regions of the Asian continent, the kingdom of beasts, and the Australian continent have close contact with animals. There are many large-scale fauna and species museums in the pedestrian area, such as the Liger Museum, the Rhino and Hippo Museum, the Squirrel Monkey Museum, the Chimpanzee Museum, and the Rare Bird Museum.
In addition to wild animals, the Locajoy Theme Park also has other cultural activities to celebrate the Double Festivals. The First Chinese Quintessence Culture and Art Festival kicked off there, including Hanfu skateboarding performance, paper-cutting, candy paintings, calligraphy, and more.
Moreover, during this festival, the Locajoy Theme Park also stages a wonderful animal-themed shadow puppet show for eight consecutive days. Audiences in front of the stage enjoyed the good shows by one screen. It is the vivid animal stories, presented by a few bamboo sticks and a few shadow puppets.
According to the park, there were three stories of the puppet show – Three Monkeys, Wu Song Slays the Tiger, and the Fox and the Crow. Not only is the plot of the story lively and interesting, but it is also fascinating, and the image of the shadow puppets is lifelike. The shadow puppet master’s operation skills are even more adept, which is really exciting!
