The underwater world of Jesolo Sea Life centre
A few years ago, a magnificent Sea Life centre opened in Jesolo Lido. It is home to more than 3,000 aquatic animals and it is involved in a marine conservation project. In 2013 it founded and registered the “SEA LIFE Trust” to increase environmental awareness and support marine life and environment protection initiatives and campaigns. The experts who work at the aquarium also contribute to a range of other marine conservation and protection schemes all over the world, such as Bite-Back Shark & Marine Conservation, the Big Fish Campaign and The Marine Conservation Society.
The Sea Life centre’s philosophy is to “breed, conserve and protect” and over the years it has launched a number of breeding programmes to gain a better understanding of species. In addition, it encourages aquarium owners to buy fish responsibly and teaches visitors that some sensitive species should not be bought for home fish tanks.
