WHAT IS THE “REPTILÁRIO DE AVEIRO”?
The “Reptilário de Aveiro” is, first and foremost, a project created by reptile lovers who turned their passion into a profession and, above all, want to protect these animals, teach about them and make them known to as many people as possible. In Western culture, these animals have been ignored, although, in the last decades, they have finally begun to step out of the shadow and be recognized as living beings. The Reptilian Centre is an unprecedented and ambitious project that will be launched in the Iberian Peninsula to make known this great treasure – the reptiles – which represents 9000 species from around the World.

VISITS AND TRAINING COURSES
The Reptilian Centre will mainly be an educational institution where everyone can learn during visits.
PROTECTION OF REPTILES
Reptiles are part of an increasingly fragile nature, and our mission is to protect them.
Is there a better reward than to see a new life being born? For us, every new birth is a new smile on our faces.
THEY ARE PART OF OUR DEVELOPMENT
“A project can’t work without the help of partners, and we were fortunate enough to be able to receive support through the Newton 2 program, which made it possible for our project to be studied and analysed from several different angles. We would like to thank our partners Newton2, Turismo de Portugal and RIERC for their support. Do you also want to be part of this adventure?”
