Zoomarine is a theme park concerned with the environment and because of that, they promote an action to raise awareness and mobilise people to the deforestation that we are living with in Portugal. This year there were huge fires in the centre/north Portugal that damaged the environment, and in previous years the Algarve has unfortunately also had to deal as well with that reality.
In 2016, Zoomarine was a leading part of Tree Planting campaign that in one day managed to plant 5000 trees.
For 2017, the goal was greater, in one day, with plenty of volunteers joining the cause they managed to plant more than 10,000 trees, in two different fields in the Silves and in Loulé areas.
It was due to the support of Zoomarine, Silves and Loulé City Halls, the University of Algarve, and Caixa Agricola that this initiative was successful and of course with the help of all the volunteers as well that embraced this cause and try to make the world a better place.
