Education

At Anglesey Sea Zoo, we are committed to providing visitors a fun and educational experience. The amazing diversity of British marine life is often a surprise to visitors, as are the various challenges and threats it faces and the impacts of human activity on our seas. We aim to show you as much of this as possible while also doing our bit for the environment, and hopefully you'll go home having learnt something new and exciting!

Marine litter & recycling

  • We are committed to preserving the environment and reducing our carbon footprint
  • Plastic litter poses a huge problem to the marine environment, and you can learn more about it during your visit!
  • We are also working with Keep Wales Tidy and recycle our waste as much as we can. Recycling bins are available throughout the site, and we encourage visitors to make use of them
  • A beach clean is a great way of learning about marine litter and its impacts while making a difference! We conduct regular cleans on Tan-Y-Foel beach with the help of volunteers, see here for more information
