Workshops at schools

On a daily basis, schools receive a large number of extrernal workshop offers. But how to distinguish which workshops are of hight quality and which ones are just mediocre? Read the following questions: If your answer is YES to at least one of the sentences, the school activities we offer are for you. If not, it’s time for you to leave this page and look elsewhere.

  • Are you looking for an educational workshop with native fauna that your students would love?
  • Do you have children in class who find it difficult to concentrate and interrupt the educational environment?
  • Do you work on projects about animals and you want to accompany classes with students’ personal experience?
  • Or do you just want to value the educational effort of your students with a distinguished and exceptional workshop?

Highlights of our school workshops?

The Foundation Zoo of the Pyrenees will bring up to 15 wild animals directly to the classroom. In other words, your students will be in direct contact with animals. Without problems that involves organization of school trips, they will meet:

  • Native wildlife
  • Protected species of Catalonia
  • Endangered species

Without a doubt, this description sounds like an impossible statement. To clarify your doubts: the Zoo of the Pyrenees is a unique institution at the state level. It works closely with the General Directorate of the Environment and is the only private entity in Catalonia that can carry out school activities involving protected native animals.

Don’t miss the opportunity to bring native wildlife workshops to your school’s classrooms. Students and their parents will appreciate it.

Which animals participate in the workshops?

The Pyrenees Zoo Foundation is a wildlife refuge. Our tasks include rescuing, recovering and releasing wildlife. But some animals cannot return to nature even though we do our best. They are animals that suffer the consequences for life, either from injury or because they are animals that were separated from their parents when they were young and do not recognize its specie as their own.

Animals that need daily contact with people for their psychological well-being are the protagonists of school activities. It should be noted that the animals are carefully selected and that the transport by car does not cause them any problems. Participating in workshops and interacting with students is completely natural for them (due to their disability). Furthermore, getting to know them and their stories increases young people’s awareness of the need to protect the environment.

By the way: if you want to know us first hand and get a real picture of our work before you fully trust us, you can visit us for free at the Pyrenees Zoo. Here is the link with all the information:
