Irrecoverable Specimens

Sometimes, specimens from other rehabilitation centers are not considered as suitable candidates to be released into the wild. The causes can range from physical impossibility to survive in the wild, to an excessive proximity to humans.


Zoomarine collaborates occasionally with the Portuguese authorities (e.g. Institute for Nature Conservation and Forests), in order to provide a suitable habitat and continuous care for these specimens. These animals integrate environmental education programs, aimed at raising awareness regarding the threats that victimize the species they belong to.
