Dubai, UAE 1 October 2019 – Calling all wildlife warriors! Two of Dubai’s leading family-friendly destinations are teaming up in a bid to unite the animal welfare movement and raise awareness about World Animal Day with the launch of Barney’s Animal Adventure, an exclusive two-day-only event.
Celebrated globally on the 4th of October, World Animal Day is a hugely important awareness-raising celebration encouraging people to jump on the animal care and conservation bandwagon and generally make the world a better place for our feathered, furry and scaly friends.
City Walk, Dubai is the place to be this World Animal Day, with Mattel Play! Town and The Green Planet taking the opportunity to raise awareness of the day with a unique, fun and educational offer aimed at children aged from 2 to 8 years.
Priced at just AED 199, Barney’s Animal Adventure will take place on Friday the 4th and the 11th of October, offering children the chance to learn all about animal awareness from their favourite characters at award-winning edutainment destination, Mattel Play! Town, and embark on an in-depth education tour of The Green Planet, which is home to over 3,000 exotic animals and plants.
Barney’s Animal Adventure kicks off at Mattel Play! Town with a special animal-themed picnic in Barney’s House from 9.30am to 11am, where children will be able to get creative with a range of animal related arts and crafts, plus indulge in a nutritious and tasty picnic breakfast.
Surrounded by their favourite characters including Barney and his friends BJ & Baby Bop, children will get to experience the regions first immersive and educational picnic experience, whilst learning about the importance of animal awareness through a range of interactive and fun learnings.
Everyone’s favourite purple dinosaur, Barney, will then say goodbye to the kids before they go to The Green Planet where the second half of this exciting day out continues with a group picture and an educational tour of the stunning indoor bio-dome and plenty of meet and greet opportunities with the cute, cuddly and slithery residents. The tour will run from 11am to 1pm and will be complete with a series of exciting games and challenges throughout the afternoon which will keep children thoroughly entertained.
Guests will have the chance to witness a sloth hanging lazily from a tropical rainforest vine, witness a pirhana feeding frenzy, see the gorgeous slow loris in their new home and even walk through the region’s only bat cave – all whilst learning the important facts on animal welfare from The Green Planet team.
The Green Planet is a leader in the animal awareness movement in the region, most recently highlighting the growing concern of the illegal animal trade in the region, following the rescue and rehoming of Amal and Lonely Loris, two slow loris who were found abandoned in the UAE. The team are on hand to offer insights into this endangered species and educate the community on the dangers of illegal wildlife trade and many other factors concerning animal welfare.
