Learning in the Medes Islands.
Educational resource guide for schools

Mero en les Illes Medes

Education and respect for the environment are two of the basic pillars of Nautilus. The ecosystem of the Medes islands, with all the species of marine flora and fauna which live in the Montgrí area, is perfect for educating younger children about the importance of caring for our natural environment while they have fun learning about the birds, fish, posidonia and other inhabitants of the Medes Islands Nature Reserve.

At Nautilus we have special offers for schools so that the beauty and biodiversity of the Medes Islands is accessible to their pupils. We have educational activities, teacher manuals, guides showing the different species of animals… Everything you need to have a fabulous day on board Nautilus and discover the undersea world with your classmates.

Also, the friends of Montgrí Nature have a brilliant file full of resources for schools, such as ProDidactic videos and El Mar a l’Escola activities, where the marine biologist Manel Gonzalez visits schools to teach about marine ecosystems and biodiversity.

You can request more information on educational activities and our learning resources for schools on the Medes Islands on our contact form. Hope to see you soon!

Discover the marine fauna of the Medes Islands

Fauna marina Illes Medes

The unique ecosystem of the Medes Islands, combined with its protected status as a Marine Reserve and Nature Park and the fact that it is forbidden to remove any type of resource from the area, has meant that a very varied, native flora and fauna has developed, particularly under the sea.

From the Nautilus boats we can see shoals of fish of many species that are rare in other places:  grouper, zebra seabream, sea bass, scorpionfish, common stingray and red mullet rule the sea in this part of the Costa Brava. There are also other very special, protected species such as red coral, starfish, sponges and sea urchins.

Here at Nautilus we would like to give you a challenge: Spot all the fishes and other marine animals that live among the rocks of the Medes Islands! Just because you are discovering and learning something new every day doesn’t mean it can’t be fun. Enjoy your undersea adventure while counting all the species you have seen on your trip.
