L'escola Ramón Casas visita les aus


The P5 class has visited us today to discover the world of birds and they have all been able to visit them.

From those that are most endangered such as the Jacint macaw, to those that can walk on the water like the Jacana or the fastest swimming like the penguin.

They have noticed the nests and eggs so different that they exist, the colors so beautiful that some have and for what purpose, the different foods depending on their beak, the songs so spectacular ...


World Zebra Day

Today the protagonists are them ... the zebras.

January 31 is the world day of zebras and we wanted to carry out our activity: Do not scratch! In his honor.

The zebra has a wide range in eastern and southern Africa. They generally live in prairies without trees and savannah forests and are absent from deserts, jungles and marshes. Habitat for this species is declining, although zoos that are zoo are not extinct but are on the red list due to minor concern.

26 by January: World Day of environmental education

The International Day of Environmental Education originated in 1975, the year in which the International Seminar on Environmental Education took place in Belgrade. This event established the principles of environmental education within the framework of United Nations programmes. As a result, Belgrade's letter was published, which embodies the fundamental demands of environmental education.

Ferran Sunyer school knows endangered species!

The 4th graders visited us to see endangered species of the Zoo, to what extent they are and what we are doing to help them.

They have also known that reintroduction is not always possible; it depends not only on the fact that a healthy population is in captivity, but also on the governments and the protection measures they have to solve all the problems that have caused their decline or extinction in freedom.

They have been able to visit many species and know the particularities of each and how the aid processes are.
