Centre Camadoca Santa Maria de Merlès
Camadoca is a center where we perform tasks of conservation of indigenous fauna of our rivers and forests. Education and environmental awareness is a fundamental pillar for the conservation of many species of fauna and flora.
Camadoca is managed by the Association for the Defense and Study of Native Fauna and Flora (ADEFFA) which has a collaboration agreement with the Department of Territory and Sustainability, for the possession of animals coming from wildlife recovery centers.
ADEFFA carries out environmental education activities aimed at the general public and schools, where the most important thing is to transmit respect for nature by observing and interacting with the animals of the Camadoca Center and its surroundings.
You can meet many fish, crabs, river shells, reptiles, birds, mammals and learn to respect and preserve the treasures we have in nature.
Visits directed at families and the general public are guided and last approximately one and a half hours, adapting them to the type of audience (children, adults, etc...).
