In Tropicarium it was possible to meet animals from all over the world. During the visit students could see lazy alligators, exotic free-flying birds, interesting reptiles, and little monkeys, amphibians, lovely coloured frogs, strange insects, hundreds of colourful fresh- and salt-water fish and the main attraction were the sharks in the 1.4 million litre aquarium. They went through the 12-meter-long tunnel where the sharks are swimming over which is a breath-taking sight. At the end of the visit they touched the rays. Examples: American alligator- Mississipiensis, Russian Tortoise- Agrionemys Horsfieldi, Siberian Sturgeon,- Acipenser Baerii, Sanbar Shark – Carcharhinus Plumbeus.
Pupils really enjoyed the place and they raised awareness about the importance of acting responsible and using the ocean resources in a sustainable manner. They consider that their contribution to the protection of certain speciesin theirnaturalhabitats isreallyimportant for the future.
