The Bioparc Foundation organizes and promotes activities that combine science and art to educate, raise awareness and promote the conservation of nature, from the smallest species to the most sophisticated biological systems. All these activities are based on the idea that the beauty of the natural world, the emotional and sensory appeal of our planet is the key that opens the door to conservation.

LINK 11WILD OCEANS FILM FEST

The first Documentary Festival promoted by the Foundation focuses on the protection and care of the oceans, seas and coasts. Based at the Bioparc Gijón Aquarium, the Festival has an agenda of activities that will spread throughout the city of Gijón during its week of celebration with screenings of the selected documentaries in different theaters and cinemas in the city, conferences and round tables in the Aquarium and an advertising display focused on awareness messages about the need to protect our seas and coasts.

The Wild Oceans Film Fest will be the first of three festivals to be held in successive years. It will be followed by the Wild Africa Film Fest at the Bioparc Valencia and the Wild Jungles Film Fest at the Bioparc Fuengirola.
