Ski Dubai funds penguin research

News   /  

The colony of Gentoo and King penguins that live at Ski Dubai has attracted thousands of visitors to the Middle East’s only indoor ski slope since they arrived in January 2012.

Now, their hosts are giving something back by funding a US $136,000, four-week research expedition to the Antarctic, where researchers will study penguin colonies in the wild in order to develop educational, and conservation programmes.

Senior research scientist Dr. Brent Stewart from the Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute will lead the expedition, which sets off to the Antarctic Peninsula, South Georgia and the Falkland Islands this month, after spending a week at Ski Dubai to prepare for the journey.
