Parco Natura Viva has been hosting for years a breeding group of Northern bald ibis. A few years ago, the park built them a new aviary in the area dedicated to the European wildlife, next to the European bison exhibit. This aviary holds the necessary features to allow the ibis to breed in a controlled environment. Indeed, the colony hosted breeds regularly, allowing to enlarge the number of individuals included in the EEP ex situ conservation programme.
