L'IES SEK visits endangered species!



Second grade ESO classes have come to visit us to see the endangered species we have at the Zoo.

They have learned about captive breeding (EEP) programs, how we reintroduce different species to their habitat in Catalonia ("in situ" conservation) or outside ("ex situ" conservation).

What are the problems in their habitats and how are they trying to solve them?

They have also become aware of the role our citizens play in helping many species by very simply changing the small behaviors and uses of materials or foods such as palm oil.

They have come to realize that we too are part of the ecosystem and that it is we who cause many of the problems that are causing the massive extinction of species on the planet.
