Worlds best rainforest zoo
Set in a rainforest environment, Singapore Zoo's world-famous "Open Concept” offers the opportunity to experience and be inspired by the wonders of nature. Animals here live in spacious and landscaped environments, simulating that of their natural habitats. Home to more than 2,400 specimens of over 300 species, 34 per cent of which are threatened, the Zoo has attained a strong reputation internationally for its conservation initiatives and breeding programmes.
To better meet the healthcare needs of its animals and working towards its aspiration to become a leading global centre of excellence for veterinary healthcare and research, a purpose-built Wildlife Healthcare and Research Centre was set up in March 2006.
Annually, approximately 1.9 million visitors enjoy experiential learning journeys at the 26-hectare award-winning Zoo. Singapore Zoo is part of Wildlife Reserves Singapore. The Zoo is a designated rescued wildlife centre by the governing authority.
Singapore Zoo boasts some of the world’s most interesting habitats and experiences. They have the world’s first free-ranging orangutan habitat in a zoo. This environment emulates the charismatic apes in their natural surroundings. Guests also get a vantage point, walking along a raised boardwalk.
Jungle Breakfast with Wildlife is a highlight for many of their visitors. This programme allows them to enjoy a meal in the company of the zoo’s iconic animal – the orangutan.
