An unforgettable ‘Swimming with Sea Lions’ experience at Rio Safari, Elche
What a truly remarkable and unforgettable experience at Rio Safari in Elche where we had the amazing opportunity to enjoy ‘Swimming with Sea Lions’. This opportunity exists due to the hard work of the ‘Rio Safari Foundation‘ which helps provide animal assisted therapy to a variety of people as part of a series of therapeutic sessions each year… For those visiting the Zoo at Rio Safari there is a daily opportunity to see these special animals at first hand….. Thankfully we managed to secure a 30 mins visit and it will certainly go down as it’s one of our highlights across the entire year across Europe.

Its been amazing to show both of our girls just how fortunate they are personally BUT also just how important it is to offer equal opportunities for children less fortunate than themselves… such as ‘swimming with Sea Lions’
experiences from therapy participants
“Before arriving, the idea of group therapy intimidated us a little. But it was a fantastic experience, group games were surprisingly participatory and fun! With regards to the persons who prepare and run the therapies, they are both great professionals and extraordinary people with great dedication. Thank You”
