The oldest animals in care have exceeded their normal life expectancy

Al Ain Zoo has successfully bred a wide variety of animals that are its home. Al Ain Zoo has announced that some of the oldest animals in its care have exceeded their normal lifespans in the wild. These include a 47-year-old vulture, a 36-year-old chimpanzee and a 34-year-old crocodile of prey.

The life expectancy has exceeded by tens of years as they have been protected from over hunting and inevitable urban sprawl.

The zoo is now home to 4,000 animals through the implementation of a state-of-the-art, fully tested and highly successful program. They use modern technology in the registration, monitoring, genetics, research, veterinary care and behavioral rehabilitation processes of abused animals.

It also used ZIMS zoo aquarium animal management software. ZIMS is considered to be one of the best global reliable source of information on an animal.

In addition, the zoo uses an advanced genetic conservation program to maintain genetic integrity. This is to ensure the conservation and persistence of the species, with the option of releasing some healthy offspring into the wild to aid repopulation.
