The Sagrada Familia school comes to join our wolfpack!

The P5 class has become part of our Iberian wolf pack.

They've learned from the parrot we have, how they hunt, that they feed in the wild and at the Zoo, how they communicate not only with sounds but also with the position of their ears, their tails, and whether or not they teach their teeth.

They have experienced what it feels like when a werewolf looks directly in the eyes, moments that they will never forget since they had a great time in front of the whole class !.

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.
