The Oceanário has a specific program for the Carnaval period. Normally this is a vacation period for kids in school, so the Oceanário (Lisbon Oceanarium) will allow children to “dive” in the ocean and change shape, colour and texture. They will make their own Carnaval fantasies while exploring the oceans, the species that live there and raise awareness for the preservation of sea life.
The plastic in the oceans is a very important issue, that everyone should be aware of. What plastic is being dumped in our oceans? How does it travel there? Is microplastic or visible plastic? All these and other questions are answered in the Museu Oceanográfico’s exhibition “Plástico no mar: despertar para mudar” (Plastic at sea: awake to change). Every day, from March 5th to 30th, at the Portinho da Arrábida Fortress.
