To know is to protect!

The Lyon Aquarium has been cultivating coral for over 15 years, with no fewer than 20 different species. Seahorses, clownfish, dogfish, sharks, rays... all species for which the Aquarium has set up conservation and reproduction programmes.

All year round, take part in activities for everyone. Suitable for all the family, they will amaze young and old alike. Observe the life of fish by taking part in themed encounters and learn their secrets. Watch the animals being fed live! Take part in the new activities around the shark pit (commentary, feeding and diving).

Treat yourself to a sweet or savoury break before resuming your journey to the tropical seas or admiring the panoramic view over the confluence.
