Five decades since it first opened in 1971, Jurong Bird Park has become Asia’s largest bird park. The 20.2-hectare hillside haven is home to 3,500 birds across 400 species, of which 20 per cent are threatened. Singapore’s bird park is famed for its large, immersive walk-in aviaries such as Lory Loft, African Treetops and Waterfall Aviary. Other unique exhibits include Penguin Coast and Pelican Cove. Jurong Bird Park welcomes 850,000 visitors annually.
Avian care research and conservation are integral to the park. Many threatened species bred here over the years and include several world-first breeding accolades for species such as the great hornbill, black hornbill, twelve-wired bird-of-paradise and Santa Cruz ground-dove.
Jurong Bird Park has the most comprehensive collection of hornbills in the world and has been at the forefront of research and conservation for this iconic group of birds. The park is also dedicated to Asian songbird conservation.
The commitment to avian welfare extends beyond Jurong Bird Park, which is also a designated rehabilitation centre for rescued wild birds in Singapore.
Jurong Bird Park is part of Wildlife Reserves Singapore which is accredited by two of the top international regional zoo associations—European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA), and Zoo and Aquarium Association of Australasia (ZAA). It is also a member of the Southeast Asian Zoo and Aquarium Association (SEAZA) and the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA).
About Wildlife Reserves Singapore
Conserving nature and protecting wildlife are core to Wildlife Reserves Singapore’s (WRS) mission. WRS manages Jurong Bird Park, Night Safari, River Safari and Singapore Zoo, which are conservation-focused zoological institutions. In providing meaningful and memorable wildlife experiences, WRS aims to grow an appreciation for nature in people and inspire them to value and conserve biodiversity. Each year, WRS’ four wildlife parks welcome over 4.6 million visitors from Singapore and around the world.
WRS is accredited by two of the top international regional zoo associations—European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA), and Zoo and Aquarium Association of Australasia (ZAA). It is also a member of the Southeast Asian Zoo and Aquarium Association (SEAZA) and the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA).
A self-funded wildlife entity, WRS leads efforts in Singapore and Southeast Asia, collaborating with like-minded partners, organisations and institutions to actively intervene for animal species and habitats and protect biodiversity.
WRS’ parent company is Mandai Park Holdings (MPH) which oversees all business and strategic development. Through its development arm, MPH is also driving the rejuvenation and integration of spaces adjacent to its WRS parks at Mandai. As the area transforms into a wildlife and nature precinct, the capacity as centres for wildlife conservation will grow in tandem.
We also offer sustainability-themed MICE or corporate events and customise our tours, so everyone can see first-hand and appreciate what is done to keep our operations sustainable.
