PAU CLARIS CONTINUES TO IMPROVE THE ZOO!

Today it was their turn to come to the Zoo to see everything the animals need to have good welfare.

Not only are facilities important, so are group or facility mates, food, environmental enrichment programs, veterinary equipment, and a good team of experienced caregivers who can quickly spot any problems or changes in the behavior of the animal.

PERE IV SCHOOL FINDS AN UNICORN AT THE ZOO!

The boys and girls of P4 of Peter IV would never have thought that they would want a unicorn and less that they could touch one!

All myths begin with a certain part decorated with an invented part, and this is also the case with the unicorn.

With the help of the Zoo educator, they have been researching the myth of the unicorn and have been discovering, little by little, through a story, the real animal that hides behind it.

FAMILIES ACCOMPANYING FAMILIES

Today some families have come to spend the day together at the Barcelona Zoo !!!

Little by little, they have been discovering some secrets of the Zoo and the animals that live there accompanied by one of the most veteran educators of the Zoo, who knows a thousand and one anecdotes of all the animals they have visited.

They were also able to ask all the questions that came to mind about the animals and the Zoo.

It's been a great day!

CATALÒNIA SCHOOL INVESTIGATES THE VERTEBRATES!

Third graders have come to research different characteristics of vertebrates in our workshop!

They have tested their senses as good mammals, discovered the covers of all vertebrates, found the most important parts of each of the vertebrate skeletons, and investigated the types of reproduction and fertilization of each type of vertebrate!

And for those who have gone faster it has given them time to look at what the bones are called, or to reconstruct the reproductive sequence of the animals.

PAU CLARIS VISITS US!

Today the first ESO students had the second session of the Zoo Interdisciplinary Project.

They will have the opportunity to see different facilities and learn what factors are involved in animal welfare.

One of these factors in which they have participated is that of environmental enrichment, one of the tasks carried out at the Zoo to improve animal welfare.

Enrichments are personalized, not only by species but also by individual. And every day they are different!

ZOO VISITS PAU CLARIS SCHOOL

Today the Zoo went to visit the 1st year ESO students who are starting a new interdisciplinary project.

They will choose different animals that are in the Zoo and research all aspects of the biology of these animals and the requirements necessary for them to have good welfare in captivity. That is why today they had the advice of a Zoo educator who explained many aspects to them about it.

It must be remembered that animals are in captivity to try to prevent their disappearance in their habitats, that is, for their conservation.

KING'S CAMP 3

We learned a lot from the animals with the help of the Zoo educator and our companions!

So we visited different animals, to whom we gave a gift that they loved, like the sweets we gave to the warthogs and many more surprises to other animals!

We also had some surprises and one that impressed us a lot was being able to see invertebrates such as a tarantula, a crab, a thousand feet or a scorpion that glows with ultraviolet light! We have been very brave!

Finally, we came home very excited with all the experiences we had with the animals at the Zoo!

KING'S CAMP 2

We have been very busy these two days!

We had little time to learn to be guardians of nature but we made the most of it! And that doesn’t end there, what we learned at the Zoo is the beginning !. Because from home we can also save nature and the species that live there by making small changes in our daily lives that do not require much effort!

In addition, now, in winter, we can make dining rooms for the little birds that right now find it difficult to find food and hang them on the balcony or in the garden.
