Sharjah: The Environment and Protected Areas Authority in Sharjah (EPAA) has added a group of African animals to ‘Sharjah Safari,’ the largest safari project outside Africa, located within Al Bridi Reserve in Al Dhaid.
The new group consists of 61 animals, including different African species of gazelles and antelopes.
According to Ms. Hana Saif Al Suwaidi, Chairperson of the EPAA, the new addition “provides the public and visitors with an optimal opportunity to satisfy their passion for nature, enjoy encountering more animals from the African continent, and create renewed educational opportunities for students of all ages, from schools to universities.”
The Chairperson further stressed that the Safari project management is keen to adopt and implement the best practices related to the continuous development of the project. Additionally, advanced and regular medical care is provided to animals under the supervision of a group of specialised veterinarians.
Furthermore, breeding operations are carried out to increase the number of animals in the Sharjah Safari, especially the rare and endangered ones.
