Al Ain Zoo Helps Humboldt Penguins From Extinction in the Wild
AL AIN, U.A.E. 10 February 2023 :Visitors to Al Ain Zoo are always welcome to experience its exciting interactive penguin attractions, which reflect the Zoo’s efforts to innovate and diversify experiences to keep visitors entertained while giving them the opportunity to learn about wildlife conservation and enjoy the Zoo as an ever-changing adventure.
The penguin feeding experience is divided into two parts: the first involves visitors feeding the penguins and enjoying direct contact with the endangered Humboldt penguins that are always excited to get their favourite food of small fish. Here, visitors can approach them and take some memorable photographs. The second part of the experience is watching the Zoo’s expert carers feeding the penguins their daily meals as they freely manoeuvre between water and land, while learning more about their behaviour and the Zoo’s preservation efforts to protect them from extinction.
The interactive experiences provided by Al Ain Zoo are specifically designed to raise public awareness of the important role played by the Zoo in protecting these amazing birds. Visitors learn about the daily care regimes applied by the Zoo in the birds’ carefully recreated habitat, which extends over 150 square meters, of which the pool occupies 60% with a depth of up to 3 metres. With a 24-hour filtration system, daily cleaning of the enclosure and ensuring that all hygiene and safety procedures are followed, the Zoo places importance on the well-being of both penguins and visitors.
Visitors can enjoy the Penguin Encounter by booking in advance through the Zoo’s call centre on 800-966.
