Al Ain Zoo has reopened the Sheikh Zayed Desert Learning Centre with a commitment to maintain all the preventive measures required to limit the spread of COVID-19.
The Centre offers visitors educational exhibits that celebrate desert wildlife and its heritage and traditions, which are a tribute to our area’s history and perpetuate the vision of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, may God have mercy on him, to preserve the environment and wildlife.
Visitors can see the wonders of the desert, the treasures of knowledge and ancient national heritage it contains. In wandering the Centre’s sections, visitors can take a journey through the past and present to the future of the country, reveling in the joy of discovery as they reconsider their relationship with the environment via five exhibitions: the Sheikh Zayed Tribute Hall, the Abu Dhabi Desert Over Time, Abu Dhabi’s Living World, the People of the Desert, and Looking to the Future.
Muneera Jasem Al Housani, Director Sheikh Zayed Desert Learning Centre in Al Ain Zoo said: “Visitors can enjoy the exhibitions and facilities confident that the Center has taken all the preventive measures necessary to halt the spread of COVID-19. They also can enjoy watching the “”Desert Vision” and “Al-Jahiz and the Book of Animals” movies at the main theater which will not receive more than 53 visitors on one time.”
The zoo operates on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. Visitors can book their tickets and view the experiences available through Al Ain Zoo’s website and smartphone app, and two ticket windows will be open. However, the zoo recommends that visitors take advantage of the electronic ticket-booking options to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Under the current circumstances, Al Ain Zoo seeks to provide a variety of experiences for families and visitors of all ages, providing an integrated entertainment experience of distinct educational value while maintaining intensive safety measures.
