Al-Ain Zoo and “Al Ain Wildlife Park & Resort” or just “Al Ain Wildlife Park” is a 400-hectare (990-acre) zoo located in the Jebel Hafeet Mountains in Al Ain, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. It is mainly composed of ungulates and herbivores such as Arabian antelopes and oryx, eland, gazelle, lechwe and is found in shady trees that provide breeding conditions that were considered excellent. As the Breeding Center for Endangered Wildlife in the Emirate of Sharjah, now closed to the public, is a member of EAZA.

HISTORY AND ANIMALS:
The zoo was founded in 1968 by Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the late Abu Dhabi Governor and President of the United Arab Emirates, out of concern for the world’s wildlife, especially ungulates such as the Arabian oryx.
The zoo features a large cat house. Lions, cougars, jaguars, and black and spotted leopards are found here. In addition to this, it also has a reptile house, combinations of monkeys, aquarium, and aviary. From February 2010 to July 2010, Al Ain Zoo hosted the “Dinosaur Trail”, a small section that includes 15 to 20 dinosaurs with sensors like the Tyrannosaurus rex, and information about the dinosaur as they live, parts of the world ( current) would have been found, and their height and diet, for example.
There is a bird show featuring predatory birds and night birds that last 30 minutes from 7 p.m. The dinosaur trail is open until 8 p.m. Wheelchairs are available upon request. Walking around the zoo and seeing all the animals, except Dinosaur Trail, can take about two hours. The zoo also has a “train” with open carts. It does not belong to the “yellow” category of the African lion, the Bengal tiger, the baboon, the puma, the saltwater crocodile, the panther, the Nile crocodile, and the leopard. The zoo is home to more than 4,000 animals, with at least 30% of its 180 species considered endangered. Conservation efforts have been strengthened by relations with the San Diego Zoo. This 900 ha (9.0 km2) park near Jebel Hafeet is where visitors can see a collection of large animals in enclosures that closely resemble their natural habitat. There are plenty of green picnic areas and playgrounds, a restaurant, and a train ride in the wildlife area. Feeding the giraffe, camel rides and the ‘Eeziba’ zoo are the latest collaborative activities. Visitors can enjoy feeding giraffes such as carrots or lettuce five times a day in a special place. Designed in the style of a local farm, the ‘Eeziba’ zoo will allow families to eat and play with sheep, goats, camels, llamas, chicken, and ducks, to enjoy a camel ride or a picnic in a designated area. A fun-filled learning scheme, designed to inspire children with a love of biodiversity, this beautiful garden of plants. The garden includes a rolling hill, mixed playgrounds, picnic areas, flower gardens and orchards of native and native UAE species, a reclaimed garden, and a vegetable, orchard, and vegetable garden. As the African Baobab trees look their best in fencing, the tall trunks provide a practical lesson on how certain plants can adapt to dry soil conditions.
Starting in April 2019, the zoo is preparing for an expansion of activity on its ongoing perimeters to create new facilities such as a breeding and breeding ground, African Safari, the World Desert Zoo, and the Sheikh Zayed Desert Learning Center.
Al-Ain Safari is a nature adventure that attracts the imagination of its visitors, young and old. Visitors may come across BIG 5 dignified animals such as the African lion and the white rhino, and they may even find giraffes. Most importantly they will also have the opportunity to learn from their Safari Guides about the fascination of lesser-known, yet less diverse species and unlike the mighty Zebra, Unainly Wildebeest, or the beautiful gazelle of Springbok. The magnificent Sable Antelope, the magnificent Kudu, and the world’s largest bird, the ostrich, are also among the most popular. The complete diversity of wildlife (especially the ungulates) is almost unparalleled, giving visitors the unique opportunity to observe the best African species in a vastly unexplored area almost identical to the wild safari in Africa.
