If you are looking for an adventure closer to the Antarctic than to the Middle East, then look no further than Dubai’s favorite ski resort. There are now twenty-nine beloved birds in Ski Dubai, and they want nothing more than making new friends.
Ski Dubai’s royal penguins are accustomed to accompanying humans – often shaking hands with any new people they meet. The “Penguin Friendship” program at Ski Dubai allows you to meet penguins. In fact, a special habitat for birds was built, to resemble their native Antarctic.
Did you want your own time with the penguins? There is a VIP option that allows families or a group of four people to meet face-to-face with the birds, plus get free hot chocolate and souvenirs.
This pioneering program has cemented Ski Dubai’s position at the forefront of penguin research and trading. And in partnership with the Research Institute Hobbs-SeaWorld in the United States of America. Ski Dubai now plays an important role in protecting and promoting penguins. Fifteen out of the eighteen species of penguins are now either endangered or threatened, and every guest on the snowy penguins at Ski Dubai helps researchers figure out how to help save more birds in the future.
Do you just want to visit the place? You can watch the “Penguin Parade” which takes place every day at 2, 4, 6 and 8 pm. Anyone can interact with birds if you are visiting the snow park or see them through the glass if you are a shopping mall of the Emirates.
Types of penguins in Ski Dubai
There are two types of penguins in Ski Dubai: the large royal type and the small Gentoo type. Each breed is kept in two groups – with five of either sex (hopefully the birds will feel the love).
In fact, Ski Dubai has seen a lot of penguin encounters, and since then Ski Dubai has welcomed six happy, healthy little birds.
How do penguins survive like this in the desert? In fact, penguins love the place here. There are 14 employees caring for 29 birds at -4 ° C, and their care exceeds the expectations of the International Tucson Penguin Advisory Group.
While penguins really do delight in their crowd, it is also important to recognize the teamwork dedicated to caring for these birds by the staff. The Ski Dubai program provides us with information on penguins and takes multi-generational research on a global scale.
