1. Being a Dolphin
You will discover the main features that make a dolphin such a special animal and the marine habitat. Using simple tools, you learn about their physiology: their size, their ability to hold their breath and see in the dark, the way they communicate with different sounds. You will have the unique opportunity to go behind-the-scenes to meet a dolphin and learn from their animal-care staff, who know them best as they spend their whole working day with them.

2. Habitats - Where do Animals Live
The African Savannah is a dry open space that shows no mercy from the ferocious predators that roam freely over the plains. A Tropical Rainforest on the other hand may have many hiding places but unexpected dangers lurk around the corner. What makes up a habitat, which animals live there and how do they survive in the harsh conditions of the wild? Learn about amazing animal survival tactics, the problems that arise when humans and wild animals come into contact and what we do to overcome these problems. Help us enrich our animals’ homes; visit the large collection of wild cats, our own African Savannah and Tropical House.

3. Animals of the Greek Forest
The Wolf did not eat Little Red Riding Hood and the Griffon vulture does not prey on live sheep. Discover why Greek wildlife should not be feared but be respected and protected.

Watch Vicky, the Otter, swim in her personal pool, our family of Bears forage for fruit and fish, the Wolves eat and play and our rescued Vultures show off their wing span.
