“We are pleased to play such an important role in the emirate of Abu Dhabis plans for future growth, and we are committed to creating an unrivalled leisure and tourism experience for our visitors. Integral to this project is the importance we place on educating future generations to live as one with our natural environment, and have an appreciation for the diverse animal and plant life that surrounds us.” - said Dr Frederic Launay, Chief Executive Officer of the Al Ain Wildlife Park & Resort said. "AWPR is setting the standard globally by developing a model for cultural and ecological sustainability, conservation and education." - he added.
