Animal welfare at the centre

The Acquario di Genova has always been committed to maintaining a high standard of care dedicated to animals and to guaranteeing their well-being.
The construction of each new tank always involves accurate technical-scientific planning, in-depth study of the new species introduced and, where necessary, training and updating of aquarium staff.

acquisitions of surplus animals between facilities that follow the same policy. However, always and only purchases from certified suppliers.

As part of its commitment to the protection of biodiversity, the Acquario di Genova is included in a European network of Aquariums and Zoos, coordinated by EAZA (European Association of Zoos and Aquaria insert link to site), which has as its main objectives the conservation of species at risk of extinction and maintenance of high standards of animal management.

The excellent results obtained by the structure in the sustainable management of its natural heritage are due not only to the high know-how of the technical-scientific staff, but also to a broad and fruitful collaboration with the Italian and international scientific and cultural world, consisting of aquariums, universities , Research Centers, Environmental Associations, and other Bodies.
