ABU DHABI: Prior to welcoming back the sea lions at the private zoo in Abu Dhabi, Emirates Park Zoo and Resort is inviting guests to the property for an educational presentation about sea mammals starting March, Emirates Park Zoo announced Saturday.

The presentation aims to inform audiences for a better understanding on the ecology of sea lions, and the role humans play in conserving the species whose existence has recently come under threat.

The audience will learn all about sea lions, its method of adaptation, behaviors, characteristics of its ecosystem, and effective conservation techniques.

Moreover, Emirates Park Zoo and Resort participates in various conservation projects in order to protect endangered animals.

Recently, the zoo trail blazed a campaign that raised awareness on the animal trafficking and abuse following the zoo’s rescue of four cheetah cubs who were smuggled into the country to be sold as pets. The four cubs were immediately treated for malnourishment and feline leukemia.

Dr Waleed Sha’aban, Emirates Park Resort’s Zoo Operations Manager, said “We are very happy to present our guests with an invaluable session of sea lions and continue to raise awareness”.
