Why can't they just build a zoo already?
They keep changing its locations. Dubai will never have a good zoo.

Zoo's are cruel places and should be banned across the world. They are no more than animal prisons.

Dubai Zoo: Looking forward to a better day

Yet another summer will come by with hundreds of animals, at the Dubai Zoo, languishing in cramped conditions even as authorities continue to delay plans for a bigger facility. Most of the animals at the zoo are either victims of illegal trafficking or unwanted pets.

In trying to find them a better home, the authorities have see-sawed over the past few years between plans on building a new zoo and shelving those decisions. Gulf News reporters take a look at the venue’s struggle to become more than just an animal shelter.

Dubai: There seems to be no respite for the more than 1,000 animals at the Dubai Zoo who will continue to languish in the sweltering summer heat due to inordinate delays in plans to construct a new and bigger facility.

While the Dubai Municipality, the authority that manages the zoo, acknowledges that the zoo has its limitations, it added that there is no immediate solution to alleviate the space constraints.

"There are many plans for Dubai Zoo but all these plans are long term and no change is expected to take place at least until the end of this year," said Engineer Eisa Al Maidour, Assistant Director-General of the Dubai Municipality.
Not only is the Dubai Zoo housing animals in cramped conditions, it has also been earning bad press with limited or no promotion in hotel advertisements luring tourists to the emirate.

The zoo has grown considerably since it was launched in Jumeirah, in May 1967, with a few animals. Today, it is home to around 230 species while the total number exceeds over 1,000 animals — all of whom reside in an area measuring 20,000 square metres, which also includes offices and a visitors' centre.

More than 80 per cent of the zoo's population consists of animals either donated by people or seized by customs or municipality officials. Now, the zoo has stopped accepting more animals due to a lack of space.

"We prepared many plans for the zoo but each time the location was changed due to urban development," said Al Maidour.

As for the new location, he said it would be between Al Khail Road and Al Ain Road in the new Dubai area because it is possible to get a bigger space there.

This is the fourth time, in the past eight years, that developmental plans for the zoo have been changed. The municipality had first announced that it would be building a zoo in Al Mushrif Park in 2003, an initiative that was later shelved.

The civic body announced its plans to build a zoo at a new location in November 2005 in the Mushrif area. This never materialised either. In 2009, the municipality announced the construction of a new zoo at Dubailand, with open free-roam spaces for the animals. However, in the wake of the global recession that project was indefinitely shelved too.

"It is sad to see animals suffering in cramped conditions in a country which has the best and biggest of facilities in the world including the driverless metro, the tallest building in the world, the man made island like Palm Jumeirah and technological wonders like an indoor-ski slope," said a visitor to the Dubai Zoo. "I feel sorry that I brought my children here," he added. Hundreds of people visit Dubai Zoo every day.

Al Maidour agreed that the existing zoo does not compare with the developments witnessed by Dubai in all fields. Nevertheless, he seemed determined to have an ideal zoo in the near future.

"The design of the new zoo is being prepared in a way where animals will be provided with much better environment..." he added.

He added that the new zoo plan will implement the best practices in the world.

Dubai is to start work on a new Zoo this year in a bid to replace the existing, outdated facility with a new park of “world class” standards, Dubai Municipality has said.

Plans for the new animal centre are expected to be signed off in the next two months with the help of special consultants, who will decide a suitable site, the required area as well as the location and grouping of animals, the municipality said.

According to the authorities, the zoo will adopt the cage concept over the safari model, which is typically reserved for developed countries and allows animals to roam freely within the development.

The cage concept is more appropriate for Dubai, officials said, given the are constraints of the emirate.

“The cages will be arranged and distributed in accordance with each category and type of animals, birds and other species in a comfortable way and adequate space without affecting the neighbourhoods,” said Hussian Nasser Lootah, director-general of Dubai Municipality.

“A full-fledged team of specialists, veterinarians, animal curators and entire qualified cadres for animal welfare according to the global systems and frame lines will be available.”

Dubai Zoo has attracted a wave of criticism over the years, with animal lovers and charities complaining about its small cages and poor living conditions.

Campaigners from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta) famously gathered outside the zoo in July 2010 dressed up in monkey masks and prison outfits, protesting against the conditions the animals were being kept in.

The facility, which was established by HH Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum in 1967, now holds more animals than before, some of which are endangered and exotic animals illegally trafficked into Dubai from other countries.

Lootah admitted that the centre was outdated, and said the new zoo would provide better conditions for the animals.

“The current zoo should be improved,” he said. “It is very old and small after the huge development around it and increasing number of animals and visitors.”

He added that the animals would be shifted as soon as the new zoo was ready.
