MEDITERRANEO MARINE PARK

MEDITERRANEO MARINE PARK PROMOTES MARINE LIFE CONSERVATION AGAINST THE STUNNING BACKDROP OF THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA.
Mediterraneo Marine Park offering entertainment alongside a learning experience unique in its kind.

Mediterraneo Marine Park is a great way for adults and children to understand more about the marine life and its inhabitants through edutainment. Spend a fantastic and unforgettable day at the Marine park in Malta where you can swim with dolphins, see sea lions, exotic birds, reptiles and more.

As Malta’s only marine park, The ‘Mediterraneo’ is a leading island attraction with tourists and locals alike. Boasting an enviable coastal location, the park promotes interactive participation with a varied selection of marine mammals including dolphins and sea lions; parrots and reptiles.

Enjoying Malta’s sunny climate, The Mediterraneo Marine Park remains open all year round. The park is conveniently located just off the main coast road enabling good transport links from most hotels and tourist accommodation.

Part of the Costa Edutainment group (since July 2012), The Mediterraneo Marine Park advocates animal welfare through an interactive learning environment inspired by their motto “Education, Emotion and FUN”. Visitors may participate in various animal interaction programmes which provide superb entertainment whilst increasing awareness and conservation responsibilities.

The park has three main programmes which are held daily: The Dolphin Presentation, The Sea Lion Presentation and the Parrot Presentation. All of these presentations offer an amazing experience to aid a better understanding of the animals and an appreciation of their individual characteristics. The highlight of any visit to The Mediterraneo Marine Park has to be the Dolphin SWIM programme – a truly unique and once in a lifetime experience that is not to be missed! Some of the other species that visitors can also expect to see include green wing Macaw, Amazons, Snakes, Tortoises, Turtles, Frogs, Toads, Spiders, Scorpions and Lizards.

Family program

THE COATI HOUSE

Coati species belong to the same family as the raccoons; they are procyonids (Procyonidae). South American Coatis or Ring-tailed Coatis are distributed throughout the South American continent except Chile. They can weigh as much as 7 kg when they are adults and reach a total length of 113 cm, with the tail taking up to half of this length. The tail is an instrument for them to keep the balance. They can live up to 14 years, although in the wild their lifespan is shorter (7 years on average). They are diurnal and omnivorous. This means they are active during the day and are able to eat a big variety of foods such as fruits, vegetables, insects, small animals and bird eggs. They are good climbers so they make use not only of the ground but also the trees, where they normally sleep. Their nose and developed sense of smell allow them to find food under the ground and rocks. Females live in groups while males are solitary. The reproduction period starts during the spring and last until the end of the summer. Females normally give birth to 3 – 4 young that open their eyes for the first time after 10 days. It takes them more than 3 weeks to learn to walk and climb. South American felines are the main wild predators of coatis but humans and dogs are also a threat for them.
