Baby sharks released into Arabian Gulf

Fifteen baby sharks have been released into the Arabian Gulf by Atlantis The Palm. 

The guys at the resort's fish hospital looked after them and made sure they were strong enough to swim in the ocean. 

It's part of the resort's marine conservation efforts with government authorities, including the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment and the Dubai Municipality.

The baby sharks were aged ten months to a year.

Atlantis The Palm is home to 65,000 marine organisms.
