Dubai ‘Bio-Dome’ Will Be Home to 3,000 Plants and Animals
A Dubai company is planning to build a tropical rainforest in the city.
Scheduled to open in the next six months, The Green Planet – in the City Walk retail area in Jumeirah – will include a bio-dome to recreate a tropical forest in an enclosed ecosystem.
Meraas, the Dubai holding company behind the project, said it “recreates the enchanting world of a tropical forest with its rich biodiversity of over 3,000 plants and animals”.
“It is built around the desire to contribute to environmental consciousness in the region,” the company said.
“As part of this priority, The Green Planet will aim to not only impress visitors with a novel green oasis in the city, but at the same time ensure that they enjoy an up-close educational and fun experience.” Details
