The founder of the Terra Natura park in Benidorm dies at 57
The businessman Miguel Fernando Taberner Molinero, founder of the Terra Natura park, died on Wednesday aged 57 after a long illness.
Son of the founder of the textile company Colortex de Ontinyent, a benchmark in the buoyant 80s, was the younger brother of Juan Manuel, who replaced his father at the head of the firm after an early death, and Rosario, the eldest.
Although his business curriculum is extensive and diverse, Miguel Taberner is especially reminded, in addition to Colortex, the Terra Natura zoo in Benidorm.
His was the idea of creating this unique attraction, innovative in the concept of immersion of visitors.
Terra Natura was inaugurated in the summer of 2004, but Taberner sold its shares and abandoned control of the business, now totally in the hands of the meat company El Pozo, of Murcia, in 2008.
