Abu Dhabi General Services Company (Musanada) has started construction of four development projects at Al Ain Zoo, including construction of a reptile park, elephant safari, gorilla sanctuary and sand cat conservation exhibit.

These AED152 million ($41.3 million) projects form part of plans by Abu Dhabi government towards being globally leader in conserving wildlife, state news agency WAM reported.

Musanada said that the AED30 million reptile park project is being constructed over a total area of 11,500 square metres and will involve the demolition of the existing reptile house.

The AED93.5 million elephant safari project aims to create a natural habitat for 15 African elephants,

as well as construction of a natural safari exhibition for visitors across a 17.5 hectare area, which will be connected to the existing Al Ain Safari and the lions exhibition along with a ‘feeding’ experience which will be unique in the Gulf region.

Musanada added that it is currently constructing the AED17.8 million gorilla sanctuary project across an area of 8,725 square metres.

The project involves construction of new exhibition courts and wooded areas along with facilities for five female and one male gorillas.
