Barcelona Zoo wants to expand her park with 4.9 ha. from sea won country. The reason for this is not so much an raising of earnings, but to involve citizen more by real nature.
That is why the park gets more the intention of a study park. For that reason, special divisions as Atlantic waters, the American and African Delta and the Mediterranean Sea Delta will be situated.

Since the white gorilla died in 2003, the visitors number of the zoo has been dropped with 12%. The project must be finished in 2009. The costs are approximately 120 mln. The environment organisations are against the project. Mainly Greenpeace; they point at violation of the Costal regulation and on the destruction of the natural coast.
