Alto da Boa Vista
Barra da Tijuca
39th part of the First Rio City Aesthetic Marathon (concept): 0.419 kilometers in 4:47 minutes – completed on Wednesday, April 20th 2016, in the quarter São Cristóvão (overall map). Bird breeder Marcelo Moura lives in Rio de Janeiro (more about him).
Why did you choose this part to represent Rio de Janeiro at the First Rio City Aesthetic Marathon?
I selected the zoological garden in Rio de Janeiro because it offers this nice and marvellous nature. And I studied zoology. Because I occupy myself with the breeding of birds and the preservation of species, I selected the zoo, so that we can see all its animals and also the arrangements of the breeding and preservation of the species here in Rio de Janeiro. They serve animals that are threatened by extinction, as for example the golden parakeet or the red-fan parrot and the Anodorhynchus. Here we have got a reproduction and preservation centre. Thank you very much.
