Touring the world's largest FALCON Hospital in Abu Dhabi

Our latest vlog takes a tour of what goes on in the hospital

There's a proud history of falcons here in Abu Dhabi and in the UAE.

The country's national bird has a history with the region going back 4,000 years, when bedouins first used them to hunt. It's thought they represent courage, nobility and honour - qualities hugely important in Arabic heritage.

The late Sheikh Zayed, founding father of the UAE, practiced falconry and introduced many initiatives for falcons - including the Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital, which opened in 1999.

Since then, the hospital has treated more than 100,000 falcons and has grown into a place of education as well as a medical centre.

Watch our latest vlog as we take a tour of the facility and see what goes on in the hospital.
