Everything is pretty serious at the moment – the global pandemic, lock downs and businesses under pressure. So, in these strange and often stressful times what better way to relax and recharge than to take a day out to connect with nature and visit one the best animal sanctuaries in Asia.

Jurong Bird Park is Asia’s largest bird sanctuary with a collection of over 4000 common and endangered birds from around the world. Opened in 1971, the park has been serving the local Singaporean and international tourist public with interactive and educational enclosures and aviaries of a vast array of bird species. Jurong Bird Park has been an attraction at the forefront of Singapore’s international tourism growth which now includes numerous other wildlife sanctuaries and, of course, the Singapore Zoo and Night Safari.

Singapore’s small land mass has been quickly swallowed up by industry and commerce, as the city state has become an important global financial services hub. Habitat destruction has come with this urban development, but thankfully this is now at the forefront of the Singapore government’s mind. The greening of urban building design, building of park and community recreation space, as well as habitat rehabilitation and venues such as Jurong, are all part of the move to limit the impact of human development and improve the lives of both human and animal inhabitants of the Lion City.

In the next stage of its history, Jurong Bird Park is to be relocated to Mandai where it will join a number of other natural attractions to form what’s been called a ‘Mega 5-in-1 Safari’. The new nature parks will make it easier for attendees to interact with many different types of animals and birds and explore different types of natural habitats from South East Asia and further abroad. Although many have viewed the move from Jurong with a heavy heart after so many years in the same location, the new Mandai project will provide Singapore with a first class zoological tourism, research and conservation hub. Mandai should prove both highly attractive to visitors and important to the continued survival of many regional and international species of animals.
