Situated near the base of Jebel Hafeet is the huge Al Ain Zoo housing over 4,000 animals of which 30 per cent of 180 species are considered endangered. Other activates such as camel riding, giraffe feeding, and a petting zoo are some of the latest additions to the zoo. Special conservation efforts have been made through partnerships with San Diego Zoo, the Fairchild Tropical Botanical Garden in Miami, and the World Association of Zoos & Aquariums.
The Emirates Park Zoo in Abu Dhabi is home to more than 1,400 species of animals, including birds, reptiles, mammals and other wildlife. The zoo, which remains open 365 days a year, makes for a perfect destination for children and families, incorporating the concept of edutainment – education combined with enjoyable and fun activities.
