The Torrevieja Natural History Museum offers a great representation of the biodiversity of species that surround us, both marine and terrestrial, some in danger of extinction, others endemic to our area, and others so rare and admired that international experts come to Torrevieja to contemplate them.
The Torrevieja Natural History Museum contains specimens of Mammals, Ornithology, Herpetology, Ichthyology, Marine Invertebrates and Malacology. Thus, for example, we will find skeletons of bottlenose and striped dolphins, rorquals, collections of original nests (abandoned after the breeding period) and replica eggs of a total of 17 species of birds native to the area, loggerhead turtles, marine molluscs of the Mediterranean Sea collected over the years on the coast of Torrevieja, as well as donations from individuals of special relevance and others so singular and unique that they have been claimed by museums in Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia and Paris.
