Education

The Environmental Education department in Jungle Park has rolled out a program of activities aimed especially at schools. Through encounters with animals the park seeks to foster learning and create experiences that encourage more young people to engage in environmentally friendly practices and help with conservation of biodiversity.

Nearly 3000 students from the different schools and collectives participate annually in the Jungle Park educational program. The activities are adapted to the children’s different levels: Pre-school, juniors and seniors. The youngest children that take part in the program activities are only three years old.

The tour includes an educational talk in our classroom, given by our biologists and sea lions trainers, students also enjoy an exhibition at the sea lions pool where they can see very closely the behavior and characteristics of these magnificent animals. After this, students undertake a guided visit through different park facilities, where they can see a wide variety of different animals.

 

Our Commitment: educate to help environmental conservation, contributing to the qualitative and quantitative increase in environmental awareness and motivating sustainable attitudes in our visiting students. We are focused on orientating the activities to educate future responsible citizens.
