I was pretty shocked and upset to read that Ski Dubai had brought penguins to its establishment (Penguins go on show at Ski Dubai, February 1). Why does Ski Dubai need to bring penguins to a giant freezer in the middle of the desert?
They pretend it is for conservation but it is all about money and marketing. If they really care about endangered species why not make a donation to protect penguins in their natural habitat?
Or why not give money to build a new zoo in Dubai to replace the one where dozens of animals are suffering from the lack of space and heat in the summer?
Once again, people are using environmental concerns to justify their commercial actions.
