Learn with us

With our programme we invite the students of the Balearic Islands to dive into the depths of the sea with our Ocean Experts, through an interactive and dynamic proposal that is adapted to all educational levels.

Schoolchildren will be able to awaken their curiosity for the marine world, acquire knowledge and concrete tools to be part of its preservation.

Minimum duration of a school visit: 3 hours

Activities aimed at different school levels: infant, primary, secondary and baccalaureate.

What is oceanic culture?


Ocean culture is about knowing the influence that the ocean has on humans and realising that humans also have an enormous influence on the ocean.  It is based on seven "Essential Principles" that we need to know:

  • The ocean plays a key ecological role in the functioning of planet Earth.

  • The ocean makes Earth a habitable planet.

  • The ocean, and the life it contains, shapes the characteristics of the Earth.

  • The ocean supports a great diversity of ecosystems and life

  • The ocean exerts a great influence on weather and climate conditions

  • The ocean and humans are inextricably interconnected

  • The ocean remains largely unexplored


Aquariums have a responsibility to promote "ocean culture" by making science, marine biology, oceanography and conservation management accessible to society at large, positioning citizens as the real actors in protecting our oceans and their resources.
