Zoo




Yes, Qatar has a zoo. The Doha Zoo is being renovated.  It is scheduled  to reopen 2017.

Qatar also has a wildlife preserve but it isn't open to the public.
The Al Wabra farm is an oasis of green areas, palm trees and many rare wild animals from allover the world. Powered by Sheikh Saoud Bin Mohammed Bin Ali Al Thani’s passion for nature, an international team of expert vets, biologists and keepers are dedicated to the care and conservation of the rare and mostly endangered animals that can be found on the farm.

Wildlife tours seem like a popular option for tourists.  Animals found in desert can include hyenas, gazelles and camels.  Visitors can also see beetles, scorpions and everyone's favorite camel spider.  They are about the size of a teacup and can run up to 10 miles an hour. oh and PS they are carnivorous. Qatar also has many species of birds, and reptiles.  Due to their arid climate amphibians are rare. (Arabian Desert)

  1. Well if they have a zoo, do they have a museum or any other places about their culture?
