The Environment and Protected Areas Authority in Sharjah, EPAA, has announced the completion of Phase I of the Breeding Centre for Endangered Arabian Wildlife, which extends over 27 thousand square metres in Arabia's Wildlife Centre. It is the first centre of its kind in the GCC.

Animals in the centre vary from mixed wildlife and predators to reptiles. Many kinds of cages that meet international design standards have been provided for the centre, as it contains dangerous animals such as lions, tigers, and snakes.

Hana Saif Al Suwaidi, Chairperson of the EPAA in Sharjah has emphasised that predatory and dangerous animals are being confiscated under the Confiscation Law of Sharjah. This is in implementation of the directives of H.H. Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, to confiscate, confine and breed predatory animals in special centres in order to keep people's lives safe.

Al Suwaidi added, "Cages in the centre have been designed according to international standards in terms of width, length and height, and the fence is made of strong materials that withstand weather conditions. Contrary to the ceilings of leopard cages which are kept open, the tiger cages' ceilings are closed. Certain temperatures and mild lighting are provided for reptiles and snakes."

The Chairperson of the EPAA indicated that Phase II will include a building with three rooms for surgery and an X-ray machine, a laboratory for studies and tests, administrative and technical offices, and a kitchen.

Upon completion of all its phases, the Breeding Centre for Endangered Arabian Wildlife will be a world for dangerous, predatory wildlife and other animals to live within a fascinating and natural environment. This will increase tourism and environmental attraction, and boost Sharjah's presence as one of the best wildlife conservation cities in the world. . – Emirates News Agency, WAM -
