After initial treatment at the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah's Aquarium, they are brought to health at the Jumeirah Mina A’Salam rehabilitation pen before being released. Partake in feeding sessions every Wednesday at 11:00 and Saturday at 14:00.

Arabian Adventures – Nature Trails
In a world where maps are updated every day, the desert presents a unique opportunity to explore natural habitat and a fragile ecosystem. Explore the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, home to a wealth of flora, fauna and birds – to spot the Arabian oryx and gazelles. Surrounded by serenity, and untold beauty, this tour offers a rare chance to see the Arabian Desert, and its wildlife, at close quarters.
Arabian Adventures tour desks operate from the Jumeirah Mina A’Salam and Jumeirah Al Qasr hotels daily.
Energy and Water Saving
At Madinat Jumeirah, as part of our commitment to the environment, we have changed over 9,000 standard light bulbs to the energy efficient CFL (Compact Fluorescent Lighting) type. They use around 75% less energy than standard bulbs, making them more eco-friendly.
In 2010, Madinat Jumeirah was the first hotel in UAE to implement the Bokashi Compost Programme to improve environmental stability. This programme produces organic compost that is used in the resort’s gardens to enrich the soil and improve its water-holding qualities. On average, 2.1 tonnes of raw food waste are recycled each month, and this compost is also used to fertilise the hotel’s organic herb garden.
