DUBAI, 26TH NOVEMBER, 2018: In an endeavor to complement our student’s classroom learning, children from grade 1 to 6 visited the Arabian Wild Life Centre in Sharjah. The center is home to a vast array of amazing wildlife. It houses over hundred species of animals, displayed in safe, spacious and natural setting. The trip proved to be exciting and informative as children learnt a lot about flora and fauna found in the Arabian Peninsula. It also helped children develop an awareness about the existing and extinct animal species.
The tour to the center gave children an insight about the evolution of Earth, Fossils and different genres of animals like Sand Cat, Reptiles, Lizards, Chameleons, Snakes and common insects such as Camel Spiders and Scorpions. The center also houses a bird aviary set in a wadi and desert setting, with hundreds of birds including Pink flamingos and Rock Hyrax.
Inside the center there was a night zone created and students got to see how animals survive in darkness. The students saw a wide variety of nocturnal animals like Bats, Fox, Porcupines, Hedgehogs, Mongoose and Rodents etc.
They were excited to see Wolves, Hyena, Cheetah and rare Arabian Leopard whilst, they also got an opportunity to observe the docile Farm animals like Goats, Roosters, Donkey, Sheep, Rabbits and Hamsters.
The informative and action packed wildlife tour, culminated with the children enjoying to their hearts content on colorful swings and slides.
