National Aquarium Abu Dhabi welcome the Students from the UAE to experience a one-of a- kind guided tour through the largest aquarium in the Middle East! This journey will allow them to reconnect with UAE’s heritage and fascinating animals from distant corners of the planet. Our virtual guide - “Khalid” the Pearl Diver- will join the students in their aquarium journey to introduce several zones and explain what makes each region represented unique.

During the aquarium journey, the students will get:

  • An up-close and personal moment with creatures like “Professor” our charismatic monitor lizard.
  • • In-depth learning about the different habitats and the animals that inhabit them.
  • An exclusive visit to our version of the protected area in Abu Dhabi; “Bu Tinah Island”, which is also the region’s largest and first UNESCO-designated marine biosphere reserve. The adventure continues with a "Behind the Scenes" tour.

The students will learn how human engineering is applied to ensure animals are given the best possible environment and receive specialized care. The doors of the first marine rehabilitation facilities in the UAE - Wildlife Rescue - are open for students to learn about the work done in partnership with the Environment Agency - Abu Dhabi, which has successfully rescued, rehabilitated, and released over 250 sea turtles back into the wild.
