About Jurong Bird Park
Opened in 1971, Jurong Bird Park in Singapore is Asia’s largest bird park, offering a 20.2-hectare hillside haven for close to 3,500 birds across 400 species, of which 20 percent are threatened. The bird park is famed for its large and immersive walk-in aviaries such as Lory Loft, Jungle Jewels, and the recently revamped Waterfall Aviary.
Other unique exhibits include Penguin Coast and Pelican Cove. Jurong Bird Park Singapore sees approximately 850,000 visitors annually.
Committed towards conservation, the bird park is the first in the world to breed the Malayan black hornbill (1995) and the twelve-wired bird of paradise (2001) in captivity for which it received the Breeders’ Award from the American Pheasant and Waterfowl Society.
Jurong Bird Park is part of Wildlife Reserves Singapore and is the only park in the Asia Pacific to have an Avian Hospital.
Aside from facilities, the park also hosts a variety of educational programmes for students. These comprise day trips, overnight camps, guided tours, workshops and wildlife publications.
Is it worth visiting? I think it’s very subjective thing to say. I personally don’t enjoy it as much as some of my friends. If you reside in Singapore, it’s worth at least one visit, don’t you think?
Waterfall Aviary is the park’s largest walk-in aviary, housing over 600 free-flying birds from 50 species, including the endangered sun conures, common crowned pigeons and Von der Decken’s hornbills. Set against a 30-metre high waterfall, it’s also the world’s first and tallest man-made waterfall.
Another noteworthy exhibit is Lory Loft, a 3,000 square metre and nine-storey high flight aviary. Featuring nine colourful lory species, this exhibit is themed after the Australian outback and is a popular highlight among visitors who get to feed lories and lorikeets while walking across suspended bridges.
