The National Aquarium Abu Dhabi is the Middle East’s largest aquarium, housing 46,000 animals in ten zones. More than 200 sharks and rays from 25 different species can be found at the aquarium.A team of 80 sea-life experts looks after all of the animals.

The National Aquarium places an emphasis on education, with an entire department dedicated to learning and improving environmental knowledge and the capacity to welcome up to 50,000 students per year.

Professor Aquademy is the aquarium’s first-of-its-kind program aimed at inspiring schoolchildren. From the UAE’s coastal heritage to conservation, the curriculum will cover four key topics. These are intended to spread knowledge and spark young people’s interest in the natural world.

In July 2020, the Abu Dhabi Environment Agency (EAD) and The National Aquarium signed a five-year partnership with the goal of assisting in the creation of one of the largest and most innovative wildlife rehabilitation programs in the world (The Wildlife Rescue Program) to protect and rehabilitate wildlife in the emirate of Abu Dhabi.
