The Zoo is offering meetings with its team of keepers, workshops on threatened species and a new activity for the Nature Passport 

Zoo de Barcelona is increasing its range of activities for the Easter school holidays. People visiting the Zoo between 23 March and 1 April will be able to enjoy a series of recreational and educational activities included in the admission price. 

In keeping with the Zoo’s strategy, all the activities are intended to promote respect for nature among people of all ages. 

Notable activities include “Meetings with Keepers”, to get a better understanding of some threatened species such as giant ants, penguins and elephants, and “Turtle Shells”, an interactive workshop explaining the state of this species in Catalonia and the role of Zoo de Barcelona in its conservation. 

Another activity being offered over these dates is the “Invertebrates Laboratory”, to gain more detailed knowledge of these little-known species which are essential for ecosystems.

All activities and times can be found on the Zoo website, with no need to book in advance. 

New activity for the Nature Passport 

Besides these options, members of the Zoo Club can enjoy a new activity to get a new stamp on their Nature Passport. “The Zoo, Fauna Refuge” explains the work carried out by Zoo de Barcelona as an animal welfare centre for species rescued from illegal trafficking and other complex situations. 

This activity brings the number of Nature Passport activities to five, making up an educational initiative that seeks to foster knowledge about the planet’s biodiversity among children visiting the Zoo, with dynamic play-based activities. The other activities are “Discovering the Zoo”, “It’s about poo”, “Primates and humans”, and “A feline in our woods”.
