The main idea of the educational project of Rancho Texas Lanzarote Park has a clear message: the conservation of the natural environment and its inhabitants, and the interaction of man in it.
During our tour of the park you can receive educational messages: touch animals, hear the sound of some of them and ask caregivers questions.
WAZA (World Association of Zoos and Aquariums) launched in 2005 this message in the “Global Strategy zoos and conservation“:
“Education is one of the main objectives of all modern zoos and aquariums. The educational role of zoos and aquariums have a social relevance and cultural impact, and has had an influent on the behavior and values of society. Education is undoubtedly an important conservation effort. “
To spend a day in our theme park can provide much more than a few hours of fun, as the educational project that we have developed is broad enough to reach different age groups, backgrounds and interests. The sensations produced by the animal-enclosure set we convey a powerful educational message.
Education is based on public awareness of the need to conserve the natural environment. Therefore, there are two distinct aspects in the field of education: formal education, received and directed to the school education sector, and non-formal, bio-educational information with content aimed at the general public.
Rancho Texas Lanzarote Park makes an effort to work with all schools in the island to visit our school and have firsthand environmental information.
