Cabrera in the school and the school in Cabrera
At Excursions a Cabrera we have been organising visits to Cabrera for educational centres for more than 50 years. Our goal is promoting the National Park of Cabrera to the younger generations, encouraging them to commit to the preservation of nature and caring for the environment. We firmly believe that the best way to motivate them is being directly involved with their conservation.
Environmental education in a protected natural reserve is more than an opportunity to develop their knowledge; it is also a chance to address current environmental issues. This is why during our visits to Cabrera for schools and educational centres, we have created the Biel, the tireless traveller of the seas educational project.
Biel, the tireless traveller of the seas
The educational project
From Excursions a Cabrera we would like schoolchildren to learn through Biel, a sea bird known on our islands as virot gros, the values and natural processes that island ecosystems present, their environmental and conservation problems and, at the same time, managing a greater awareness about the loss of biodiversity in those ecosystems.
Biel, the shearwater, is one of the most emblematic yet unknown species of the Cabrera National Park. During the visits to Cabrera for schools and educational centres, Biel’s lessons will enable to unify concepts and conservation values both in the marine environment and in the fragile coastline ecosystems.
In line with our goal of contributing to increasing the knowledge of our students on the National Park of Cabrera, during this school year, we put at the disposal of the educational centres the following activities:
Excursions a Cabrera has an environmental teacher with a long career path in the world of ecosystem conservation in the Balearic Islands and of emblematic species and species in risk of extinction such as the Balearic shearwater. Students will visit the educational centre together with him/ her and Biel and will get closer through an exhibition of one of the tremendous environmental jewels that the islands have: the archipelago of Cabrera.
Who is it for?
Primary school and secondary education students

Come to discover the National Park of Cabrera with us:
During the school year at Excursions a Cabrera we put at the disposal of the schools our range of visits to the National Park of Cabrera. Our fleet, comprising three boats of 80 37 and 35 enables to organise the visit of several classes at the same time, as well as a greater availability and time flexibility.
Of all of our excursions, the CLASSIC is the one chosen by most schools to enjoy a day at the National Park. This excursion enables to calmly develop any educational, environmental and leisure activity on the island. As dictated by tradition, at the end of the visit we will take a dip at the Blue Cave. Many schools and educational centres visit us every year. Would you like to join us?
