Mandai Wildlife Group announced today, October 3, that a new park dedicated to birds will open in the second quarter of 2023. This iconic new experience replaces Jurong Bird Park, when it closes after 52 years on January 3.
Bird Paradise will be home to 3,500 birds from over 400 avian species. It will feature eight walk-in aviaries where visitors can feel as if they are journeying across global ecologies. From the Southeast Asian rice terraces to South American jungles…it will be the ultimate destination for nature and wildlife lovers.
Highlights include Hearts of Africa, the largest walk-in aviary, representing forest valleys of Africa where visitors can watch bee-eating species. Wings of Asia will host pheasants in an Asian and Bali-inspired rice field. Meanwhile, the Amazonian Jewels will replicate habitats in South America.
Plus, Penguin Cove will boast an eco-friendly dining experience next to an underwater sanctuary of white and black penguins. Additionally, the group announced more than 20 species of hornbills on display will make the collection the world’s largest living genetic reserve of hornbills under human care.
Certainly, Bird Paradise will be the perfect place to immerse yourself in nature and interact with a range of diverse birds as well as endangered species. Keep an eye on Mandai Wildlife Group for updates.
