Dubai Crocodile Park to open next year-end

Dubai, Dec 4 (IANS/WAM) The Dubai Crocodile Park project is 43 per cent complete and will open at the end of next year, said Juma Al Fuqae, Director of Property Management Department and Vice Chairman of the Investment Committee at Dubai Municipality.

Al Fuqae said the opening has been extended to allow more time for preparations at the venue which is being set up on the lines of Crocodile Parks in France, and is considered to be the first of its kind in the Middle East.

Once open, the park will enable hundreds of crocodiles to grow and reproduce naturally, and will house many types of Nile crocodiles, the largest fresh-water species in the world.

Talking on the environmental aspect of the project, Al Fuqae said the engineering and construction materials used in the project are environment-friendly and depend on renewable energy and waste treatment.
