Interpretation Classroom Invasive Species Alcalá la Real is the only of its kind in Spain. It acts as shelter and environmental education focused on the problems posed by the introduction of exotic species into our ecosystems and their environmental, economic and health effects.

RECEPTION OF INVASIVE SPECIES: In the Hall of interpretation, we take care of receipt of seized species (due to the illegal trafficking of species, banned trade in pets, etc.), donated by individuals or found in the wild.

Invasive alien species are the second global threat to biodiversity.

RESCUE OF NATIVE SPECIES: Facilities continue to act as Rescue Center Amphibians and Reptiles. We work with individuals or populations that suffer specific threats and then release them in their own areas of distribution.
