Nowadays zoological gardens are places where people can not only see animals from all over the world, but also learn live a true educational experience. The Educational Department of Parco Natura Viva is more and more focused on becoming a real center for environmental education on a local level, with the purpose of offering educational programs and meetings to schools in order to promote environmental knowledge and make students aware of issues related to nature preservation.
