Sunday 3 October 2021 Instead of October 4, Ecomare celebrates Animal Day on October 3. That gives you more chance to be there! It promises to be a festive and exciting day with all kinds of games for the animals. The zookeepers are making it difficult for the seals to get their fish today. They hide them in toys and barrels and hang them on a line above the basin. Because it is also Science Weekend, at 11 am and 3 pm they will talk about the importance of enrichment for the welfare of the animals. Are you celebrating Animal Day with us? Opening hours: 9.30 am - 5 pm. The office closes at 4.30 pm.
