Closure of Jurong Bird Park

Jurong Bird Park has been at the same location for the past 52 years, but it has recently announced its closure of the park. It is set that Jurong Bird Park will close down on 3th January 2023 which is the exactly 52 years since its debut in 1971.

I am sure many of you remember the times where you have been to Jurong Bird Park, whether is it a school outing or a family outing. With over 3,500 birds across 400 species, Jurong Bird Park is also one of the largest bird parks in Asia. They are also the home to many endangered species such as the Philippines Eagles, Straw- headed Bulbul and Edwards’ Pheasant.

Some of the activities you can partake in when you are visiting the park are Wildlife Tours, Animal Feeding and Keeper Talk.

Relocation of Jurong Bird Park

Jurong Bird Park A Night to Remember

The reason why Jurong Bird Park is relocating is because they want to merge the Rainforest Park, Mandai Zoo, Night Safari and River Safari to form a massive 5-in-1 natural reserve. They will then rename to Mandai Bird Park due to the relocation and it is expected that it will take around 3 months to relocate all the animals. Our winged friends will also be given a spacious 17-hector forest, where they will be given the freedom to roam freely to boost naturalistic habitats. Bid farewell to our winged animals this weekend before they move to Mandai!
