The discovery workshop

New to Marineland!

With the "discovery workshop" (in French only), the educational team at the Marineland zoo offers a daily slot, fun and free, for families during school holidays (excluding July-August). Young and old alike are encouraged to participate in a small group in several activities that appeal to their curiosity. Explorers of the marine world will be able to learn how to protect sea turtles and the other species that inhabit the seas and oceans. Ready to take up the challenge?

At Marineland, the scientific animators are easy to identify thanks to their yellow polo shirts and their communicative energy during educational presentations and talks. They are always available to answer your questions in a passionate and enthusiast way!

During school holidays (excluding July-August), an educational animator welcomes you for 30 minutes (1:15 p.m. – 1:45 p.m.), for a truly privileged moment in the educational area of ​​Marineland. As questions arise during activities, marine animals and their protection in the natural environment will no longer hold any secrets for you.
