Centre Camadoca Santa Maria de Merlès
Camadoca is a center where conservation tasks of native fauna of our rivers and forests are carried out. Environmental education and 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 keeping of animals from recovery centers for wild fauna.
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 will be able to meet many fish, crabs, river shells, reptiles, birds, mammals and learn to respect and preserve the treasures that we have in nature.
Visits for families and the general public are guided and last approximately 1 hour and a half, adapting them to the type of audience (children, adults, etc...).
For schools, arrange a visit in advance and the main activity consists of a visit to the Camadoca Center and an outing in recognition of the surroundings, but the activities may be specific to topics related to fauna and flora, etc... that you want to work on. The workshops are suitable for all ages, from kindergarten to university level.
Specific training activities can be done.
ADEFFA also organizes environmental volunteer activities, which can be found on the website
