There were four lion cubs in the park last year. Speaking about animal health in the summer, Al-Zaruni said: “During this period, the climate-controlled fence in the park will allow the animals to live in comfortable conditions close to their natural habitat. Termination of activities in the park will also allow for this. For the modernization of premises and services. And to carry out repair work to improve the living space of the animals.”
The director said that during the year, all animals underwent regular medical examinations, and they were not found to be infected with the Covid-19 strain. In the last season, none of the animals suffered from heatstroke or died prematurely.
During the year, the park operated at 30% of its capacity and received over 300,000 visitors. “The government allowed to increase the capacity to 70%, but we are closing it. Hopefully we can open it in September and we have more places to stay, “said Al Zaruni.
