I spent Boxing Day in December 2019 at this historical location. Both adults and children are very fond of performing surgical demonstrations and feeding birds, which is ideal for families. Going away with a souvenir leather hood, this is the best dialogue film from my holiday trip in December 2019! My all time favorite attraction in Abu Dhabi! A must-see attraction!
Turn right at an intersection just before the bifurcation of the highway. The sign is on the side of the road. Don't go past it, or you will have to go around for a long time.
The hospital itself is worth the fare. You can rest in the coffee shop before the assembly. Wi-Fi is available and there is no need to buy things. It is too expensive. There are very few Chinese. I was the only one on the day I went. The explanation was rich and there was everything I wanted to know. There are two types of fares. Normally, group tickets only include Arab special meals at noon, but I asked later that individual tickets can also include meals with a little extra. I withdrew early because I wanted to go back to the hotel to rest.
The Falcon Hospital is a medical institution that rescues eagles. Many huge eagles can be seen in this hospital. In the UAE, the eagle is a very popular animal among the wealthy, and these animals are often seen on the road.
Really good morning or afternoon, its a very interesting tour and you get up close an d personal with the Falcons.
Their pet service is good, at least not for profit
The falcon hospital is a pet hospital unique to Arabia. Arabs do not raise them, but they raise ligers, tigers, leopards and safari. In the UAE, the saker falcon has its own passport and can travel abroad with its owner. It cannot be locked in a cage like other animals by plane, but must buy a ticket with the owner and occupy a seat next to the owner. The Abu Dhabi Saker Hospital is currently the largest public saker hospital in the UAE, with a large scale, advanced facilities and formal management. The director is Dr. Argit Gabriele Muller, who has been engaged in saker research in Germany for many years. The Abu Dhabi Saker Hospital now receives more than 4,400 birds of prey from all over the world each year. These ferocious pets are cared for with the highest treatment here. Regardless of internal or external injuries or infection with parasites, Falcon Hospital can restore the health of raptors as much as possible, and can even reattach feathers to falcons with folded wings and return them to the blue sky. When you walk into the consulting room of Abu Dhabi Saker Hospital, you will see that the Falcons who are "waiting" are "sitting" on low benches in rows, waiting quietly, they all wear The cute "helmets" (eye masks), although the eyes are covered and invisible, but when they hear movement, they turn their heads and turn their ears to listen. They look really cute. According to Dr. Muller, the reason for wearing blindfolds to the falcons is to keep the falcons quiet, because the falcons who come here for treatment are of different types, their sizes are also different, and there are errors between them. Keeping track of the complex ecological relationship, if you open the blindfold, a larger or more ferocious falcon may find that "your lunch (small falcon)" is sitting next to it, and will attack it or even kill the other. In order to prevent such a tragedy from happening, and to maintain the order of the hospital, all the saker falcons in the clinic were put on blindfolds so that they could wait quietly for treatment. When you enter the consulting room, you can observe closely how the doctors trimmed the nails of the saker falcon. To trim the nails of the saker falcon, you must first anesthetize it, and then quickly go through multiple procedures of trimming, sanding, and oiling. We touched the Falcon’s body with our hands while it was drowsy, feeling the body temperature and feathers of a desert hero. In the Falcon Hospital, doctors can also perform surgical operations on the Falcon. They have an independent operating room with clean links and advanced equipment. At the same time, there is also the opportunity to feed the saker falcon. When it stops on your arm and bites food from your fingertips, you can't imagine that a bird with such a petite body can have amazing strength! When the food in your hand is only leftover bones, the excitement and blood make you immediately feel the terrifying appearance of it galloping through the desert and hunting fiercely. The cute and adorable look of it wearing a blindfold disappeared in a moment! ps. The visit must be booked in advance, we did not, missed the appointment time, but we still went to try it, it was not easy to travel all the way, under the three requests of us and the tour guide, finally gave us accommodation ✌
