If you are on Texel, then you go to Ecomare! A visit to this center is fun and exciting for all ages. Enjoy the young seals in the sanctuary, watch the seals in the permanent group above and under water and be amazed at everything that lives in the sea in the Sea Aquarium. The interactive exhibition Wonderlijk Wad leaves a deep impression; how special nature is. The Wadden Sea is a UNESCO World Heritage Site for a reason! Needy birds are cared for in the Bird Shelter. There you will also see a group of gannets: impressive, beautiful sea birds. They share their enclosure with cormorants and shelducks. In the Whale Hall you stand between the gigantic skeletons of a sperm whale and a humpback whale and discover what is meant by 'a treasure from the gut of the sperm whale'. There is so much to experience! Buy your tickets with start time in advance at www.ecomare.nl. Ecomare is open daily from 9.30 am - 5 pm (except Christmas Day and New Year's Day).
