What we will do
- We start this excursion dedicated to sea life by visiting the Projeto TAMAR facility, a non-governmental organisation for the protection of sea turtles operating along the Brazilian coast in areas where these animals reproduce.
- During the visit, we get the opportunity to learn more about sea turtles and, of course, see them with our own eyes! We gather around the five display tanks, one of which has glass walls to observe turtles up close both from above and beneath the water.Our next destination is the Ubatuba Aquarium*, where we get the chance to learn more about the complex marine world.
- We admire the 12 salt-water tanks, including one of the largest in Brazil where examples from the local area and other oceans swim in 80,000 litres of water.
