Educational offer of the Zoo of the Pyrenees
Boys and girls love animals. And to tell the truth, teenagers love them too, though they don’t always want to show it.
At the Zoo of the Pyrenees we rescue wild animals. And precisely these victims of human action are the one who participate in our educational offer. Seeing, caressing and feeding these animals arouses empathy in young people and makes them understand the real need for the protection of the natural environment.
Its effect on classroom learning is very positive, as well. Teachers often encourage the interest of students in educational projects with the promise of participating in our workshops afterwards.

Opinion of schools on our educational offer
Col·legi Jesús Maria Sant Gervasi, Barcelona
“We were very grateful and excited for all the classes. However we discussed the issue of time. Maybe it was a little longer and we felt sorry for you and the animals, as we had agreed on an hour per group. Regarding the animals and your explanations, everything was great. Thank you so much for the experience, we will definitely be back. ”
Escola La Maquinista
“The children were delighted, some families even wrote to congratulate us on the activity. I thought it was all right. I also loved the way you provided the information and the 3 questions you asked once you had finished explaining it. Also how did you respond to the children’s questions? ”
CEIP El Vinyet, Solsona
“… On the other hand, your adapted explanations, the way you treat animals and the respect they convey become very meaningful learnings which is what ends up being left in children. Thank you so much for your work! ”
CEIP Arrels I, Solsona
“… This visit helped us to start the school project in the classroom. We have been able to observe and evaluate very positively how the explanations, observations and experiences at the zoo have enriched: “Vocabulary, observation skills, has encouraged curiosity about the animals observed and more generally, respect for nature.”
CEIP Aiguadora Navès
“Excellent demonstration by the zoo staff, who have been able to convey, through very appropriate explanations for students, the characteristics and lifestyle of these birds. The proposal is very attractive because otherwise we would not have been able to see, experience and observe these birds up close. We thank the zoo for the activity. ”
“…On one hand, it offered us the opportunity to know the most important characteristics of the native fauna that is unknown to most of us. And on the other hand, through this knowledge, pupils become aware of the need of its conservation. Definitely a very complete activity pedagogically speaking.”
St. George School Barcelona
“Thank you so very much. We all had a wonderful morning and the children were all entranced and loved seeing and touching the animals. We have had lots of parents telling us today that their children did not stop talking about the animals when they got home on Friday!
Thank you so much for all of your kind work and support making all of the sessions so fun, memorable and informative for all the children, despite some of them being so very young.
We will definitely be in touch soon to book you to come and visit us again.
My huge thanks and best wishes to you all, Lucy.”
