River Safari is home to one of the world’s largest collections of freshwater vertebrates, with over 11,000 animal specimens representing close to 260 species as well as 400 plant species. Through themed exhibits that mirror iconic riverine systems of the world, River Safari aims to inspire the million visitors that come in annually, to appreciate and protect fragile freshwater ecosystems.
Visitors can also learn about iconic river giants like the highly threatened Mekong giant catfish and giant freshwater stingray, giant arapaimas, green anaconda and Antillean manatees. The park is also home to giant pandas.
With a focus on sustainable operations, River Safari is the first attraction in Singapore to be conferred with the Building and Construction Authority’s Green Mark Platinum Award in the park category.
River Safari is part of Wildlife Reserves Singapore which is accredited by two 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.
When you are taking part in our programmes, you are helping to contribute to the care of the animals, research and education programmes in all our parks, as well as the conservation projects we support to protect threatened species in Singapore and the region. Join us in our journey towards a sustainable future for us, for nature and for wildlife.
