Educational activities at the Barcelona Zoo

This summer, Barcelona Zoo is set to launch its new ‘Nature Passport’: a set of activities aimed at making Zoo Club members genuine nature experts 

Under the slogan “At the Zoo discovery area”, these activities invite club members to become Zoo ambassadors by getting involved in conservation activities, conducting scientific research and helping to raise awareness of the planet’s biodiversity 

This summer, Barcelona Zoo is set to bring in its new ‘Nature Passport’ programme: an exclusive and free initiative for the more-than-80,000 members of the Zoo Club which, under the slogan “At the Zoo discovery area”, aims to bring members closer to the Zoo's rich biodiversity and introduce them to the activities it carries out to preserve it. 

The Nature Passport is a physical document that will allow members to take part in different educational and fun activities. Each activity will be assigned a certain expertise level. The Zoo's team of educators will stamp your passport at the end of each activity, and once you get all the stamps you will be considered a true ‘nature expert’. 

Existing Zoo Club members can pick up the new Nature Passport at the Zoo Club office, while new members will find the passport in their welcome packs. 

The activities will last between 30 and 45 minutes, and must be booked in advance through the Zoo Club user area on the zoo’s website.

The first stop on this fun and educational tour of Barcelona Zoo focuses on discovering what modern-day zoos do to protect nature. This serves as an introduction to the other activities, which allow participants to explore different habitats and species. It will address, among other things, insects and the key role they play in ecosystems; the world of primates; and what we can learn from studying animal faeces. 

Free daily activities for all visitors

Besides the new Nature Passport activities, Barcelona Zoo will also run a series of activities throughout the summer for all other visitors. This programme includes new experiences with the keepers, which complement the visit and shine a light on the day-to-day reality of the Zoo and the important conservation work it carries out. 

These activities are free of charge and do not require advance booking. They are updated on a weekly basis. The schedule of activities can be consulted on the Zoo's website and using the QR codes found on the different information signs around the zoo itself.
