Activities

1. Whale Watching

is for school groups, families, social groups, lovers of the nature and for the general public. We include specific, educational material for each type of recipient.

All the whale watcher receives a leaflet called "Information for the Whale-Watcher", about the resident species of cetaceans and the ones in transit in the Straits of Gibraltar. During the trip, once the species is sighted, we describe its behaviour, its social organization, as well as the relationship with other marine mammals, as well as the fish and the birds, which share the same marine ecosystem.

School Groups: Prior to the day of the excursion, we send to the faculty specific material to study in the classroom.

This differentiates itself in:
  A)Syllubus, for children between 10 and 14 years, called "We respect our environment", about the cetaceans and the marine life.
  B) "Document of the Ceateans in the Strait of Gibraltar " for the children from 15 to 18 years.   - For younger kids we have a coloring book, where además can learn the concept of "The Seas trophic chain".
