The 3rd graders have experienced what it means to be amphibious and reptile by touching their scales, they have seen how they reproduce, what they eat, where they live ...
Afterwards they have been visited with the Zoo educators, in the terrarium they have seen the great diversity that exists on the planet!
Then they visited the nursery, where the young of endangered species - the Mediterranean and the river turtle - are part of European captive breeding programs. Every year, reintroductions are made to our territory to prevent their extinction!
They have also known the problem of buying exotic species as pets and their release to our rivers!
