What to expect?

Aquarium Pula - Blue School

The Blue School is an educational programme geared to groups of young students looking for deeper insight into the Adriatic wildlife. The School is led by biologists and focuses on raising awareness on the value, beauty and functionality of nature and the need to protect it.

Activities include looking for organisms on the beach, in the so called ''extreme zone'', the transition from land to sea. All spotted species are then identified, assigned to a litoral zone and their special adaptation to this harsh environment explained. If the weather allows, a snorkel tour along the rocky bottoms of the shallow waters of Verudela beaches is organized. Field work on board a boat is also possible, including sailing and fishing. Small fishing and plankton nets are lifted and the organisms are identified directly on the boat and released back into the sea. These activities can be combined or undertaken separately. An additional guided visit to the Aquarium of Pula can also be included, completing the educational component of the School.

Aquarium Pula
Aquarium Pula d.o.o. is a public aquarium whose main emphasis is the promotion of wildlife conservation in marine environments, as well as rising public awareness about sea life in general. The Aquarium is situated in a protected historical monument, fort Verudela, part of the once mighty Austro-Hungarian defense complex “Fortress Pula”. The revived historical fort transformed to an aquarium, the educational programmes and a unique Sea Turtle Rescue Centre provide a good combination for educating the general public, school groups, students and others about the need to protect our natural and cultural heritage.
