Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo has launched an aqua-nursery for its youngest residents to spend their initial months.

Adorned in blush pinks and baby blues, the nursery not only allows the aquarium experts to care for the newborns, but it also offers visitors the opportunity to learn about the varying lifecycles and reproductive process for a variety of species.

Visits to the aqua-nursery will also explore peak breeding seasons, gestation periods and the scientific terminologies covering various species, a statement said.

Currently residing in the nursery are zebra sharks, shovel nose rays, bamboo sharks and blue spotted rays, which have all been born naturally at Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo.

As Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo said the aqua-nursery seeks to further engage young minds and teach them about species which are otherwise not accessible, adding that additional species will arrive in the coming months.

The aqua-nursery joins other attractions aimed at raising awareness, including King Croc, Kraken’s Lair, and underwater experiences including the Shark Feeding encounter and Underwater Scooter.

Entry to the aqua-nursery is included with all Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo tickets.
