Dubai Zoo

Dubai Zoo is the oldest zoo of its kind not only in the United Arab Emirates but also in the Arabian Peninsula. Dubai Zoo also happens to be the first Arabian zoo to breed the rare Chimpanzee and Arabian wild cat. During the first couple of years of its existence, the Dubai Zoo housed only a few animals like the big cats, monkeys and hoofed animals. There was also a small aquarium with some fishes and reptiles but when in 1971 the management of the Dubai Zoo was taken over by the Dubai Municipality a part of the Zoo was redesigned and rebuilt. From then to the present there is constant redesigning and renovation. Located in Jumeirah, the Dubai Zoo is a popular attraction, especially for families. The zoo s modern facilities though small includes a group of animals that fits to UAEs environment, and in other environments from all over the world and houses approximately 230 animal species among these are around 248 mammal specimens, including foxes, hyenas, pumas, lions, jaguars, chimpanzees, baboons, monkeys, deer, bears, porcupines, giraffes and Barbary sheep. Endangered species include Socotra shag or cormorant, Bengal tiger, gorilla, subspecies of grey wolf and Arabian wolf, Siberian tiger, and the indigenous Gordons wildcat.
