The Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital is another example of the city forging ahead, with cutting edge technology and world class veterinary facilities. The hospital offering comprehensive veterinary health care services exclusively to falcons was founded in 1999 and today, is the largest falcon hospital in the world. Over eleven thousand of these majestic birds pass through the doors of this state of the art facility each year. During its years in operation, the hospital has branched out into other areas of veterinary care and today operates a large fully equipped small animal hospital. The facility conducts research and training and education and awareness. They also perform Trap-Neuter-Run programmes, to humanely control the city’s street dog and cat populations.
In 2007, the Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital launched an international award winning tourism programme on falconry. The “Falcon World Tour” is an interactive and educational experience for visitors that follows the history of the species along with an informative introduction to the majestic creatures. Guided tours run from Saturday to Thursday but not Friday and public holidays. Different tour packages are available including special customised packages.
