Visitors of all ages are fascinated by the recently opened „North Sea Worlds “. This section of the zoo consists of a 565,000 litre seal pool in which large glass panels give intriguing underwater views of the animals in crystal-clear water, a walk-in aviary for wading birds with wave machine, and a sand dune area with roofed wicker beach chairs.
The centrepiece of the marine aquarium is the 170,000 litre reef aquarium. This coral reef biotope is home to two black-tipped reef sharks, countless tropical fish, starfish and of course corals. Exotic birds and reptiles as well as the tiny dwarf marmoset and their young are also hugely popular.
In the open-air sections, wooded enclosures and extensive aviaries you will find not only Seychelles giant tortoises, seals, coatis, ring-tailed lemurs, gibbons, lynxes, golden eagles, storks and numerous water birds, but also a petting zoo with sheep and goats where our youngest visitors can get really close to the animals.
