AWPR Statement – 13 April 2011
Al Ain Wildlife Park and Resort has been increasingly worried about Giza Zoo’s lack of progress in constructing the new orang enclosure and we were very disappointed regarding the death of the male orang utan, Fatootah. We have been in active communication with the Giza authorities for several months to resolve this issue and indeed we have offered to temporarily house the animals back at AWPR until suitable accommodation is constructed at Giza. Our primary concern is the welfare of the two orang utans and we are, with our colleagues in PAAZAB, WAZA and the animal welfare community, committed to resolving the problem in a timely manner.
