The newest addition to yas island offers, the mega-development is slated to debut in 2023. According to a release from Miral, it would contain the first specialised marine research, rescue, rehabilitation, and return centre in the UAE.

The research and rescue centre, which is next to the marine-life theme park, will debut later this year. It will provide a cutting-edge information centre with an emphasis on native Arabian Gulf and marine life habitats, supporting local, regional, and international conservation initiatives.

The centre will be run by top-notch marine scientists, vets, animal care specialists, rescue experts, and educators who will work with other professionals, academic institutions, environmental organisations, and regulatory bodies to influence long-term conservation efforts in the area. According to Miral, the rescue crew will be accessible to help the authorities around-the-clock.

HE Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak, Chairman of Miral, commented on this achievement by saying: “Abu Dhabi and the UAE have long been leaders in marine conservation, and SeaWorld Abu Dhabi marks the beginning of a new chapter in marine life knowledge, conservation, and sustainability for the region and the world.

By bringing this cutting-edge marine-life theme park to the city through our cooperation with SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, we will further establish Abu Dhabi as a major international travel destination and further the country’s goals for economic diversification and growth.

The marine-life theme park, which spans five indoor floors and has a total built-up size of over 183,000 square metres, is now finishing up the interior themed guest areas, habitats, attractions, and immersive experiences.

The company noted that the purpose-built habitats and ecosystems for the animals that will call SeaWorld Abu Dhabi home have been designed and built using the latest technologies, aiming to provide the residents with a dynamic environment that replicates their natural habitat. SeaWorld has been operating marine-life theme parks for over 55 years.

The largest and most extensive multi-species marine-life aquarium in the area will be housed inside the marine-life theme park. It will include a wide range of interactive displays and immersive experiences that will educate and inspire visitors from all over the world to increase their understanding of marine life.
