For more than two-thirds of families, zoos and animal parks are their first contact with wildlife. These encounters with exceptional animals are intended to enable visitors to get to know them better and to become aware of the major issues at stake for marine fauna.
Throughout the route and next to each species, we provide panels in French, English and Italian containing comprehensive information on the animals' characteristics, including anatomy, lifestyle and reproduction. These panels answer the main questions that people of all ages may have and also address very important issues like dangers and threats, and activities that promote biodiversity and the preservation of endangered species.
These educational panels include information about the scientific classification of species. You will learn that the Steller sea lion is a mammal, of the Carnivore order, Pinniped sub-order and Otaridae family and that its scientific name is Eumetopias jubatus. The Loggerhead sea turtle, Caretta caretta, is a reptile belonging to the Chelonia order and the Chelonidae sub-order.
Each panel provides information on the conservation status of the species, this indicator helps to evaluate the extent to which populations are at risk of extinction at the time of the visit. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), proposes several categories ranging from extinct species (EX) to species of minor concern (LC).
These panels also include a great deal of data: weight, size, feeding mode, reproduction, habitat areas, main threats in the natural environment and the activities carried out by Marineland to help them.
Many other panels mark out your route in relation to the reproduction of species or the research and conservation programmes carried out by the Marineland Association,
Be curious, make the most of your visit, with family, friends or on a school visit, to learn more about marine animals!
