The Stazione Zoologica is also dedicated to the development of training programs, dissemination activities and promotion of the public awareness of the importance of marine biodiversity conservation. These activities are carried out either through the Public Aquarium, the centre for research on sea turtles and the Museum on marine biodiversity and evolution and the largest marine library in europe. The researchers of the Aquarium are also involved in research projects aimed at the protection, rescue and rehabilitation of large marine vertebrates. The Stazione Zoologica performs outreach activities designed to make everyone aware of the importance of enhancing the natural heritage of the Mediterranean and its habitats.
