In total, over the past five years €17 million has been invested in Zoomarine, with €2.7 million being supported by Turismo de Portugal.
During 2019, the number of visitors to Zoomarine rose by 6 percent as the park continues to focus on improving educational entertainment, conservation and a green business model which now includes zero emission vehicles.
Water used in the park for the habitats now uses sea water collected locally which helps the environment of the inhabitants and also removes the need for artificial salinisation, while the park has also managed to increase its own produced electricity consumption to almost 40 percent.
In a statement from Zoomarine, the management highlights the work of the company to encourage the regeneration of natural systems by providing community activities to reduce waste on Algarve beaches (scheduled for 10 May) and mass planting initiatives (8 and 9 November).
This year the restaurant areas of the park have been refurbished and there are new attractions to enjoy including three new rides, Ferry boat, Torre Farol and Twist Manta and two new 4D films to watch and experience.
