Jurong Bird Park no more, the new home for the birds will be called Bird Paradise and it is set to open to the public in the second quarter of 2023.
Bird Paradise will be the new home to 3,500 birds from over 400 avian species.
In a video shared by Mandai Wildlife Reserve on Instagram, the new park looks massive and will feature various landscapes and habitats.
Visitors can walk through eight immersive large aviaries that have been built to look like natural habitats in the wild. Explore African rainforests, Southeast Asian paddy fields, South American wetlands, eucalyptus forests in Australia and more.
Some of the highlights include the Wings of Asia which will feature sloping rice terraces and lush bamboo forests to see endangered species like the Milky Stork and Baer’s Pochard, a diving duck. The main attraction is Heart of Asia where visitors can go on an elevated canopy experience and walk in a dense misty forest for some birdwatching.
Familiar experiences include the Penguin Cove, an indoor habitat which will be home to various penguins like the Humboldt Penguin, King Penguin, Gentoo Penguin and Northern Rockhopper Penguin.
The park will also include a state-of-the-art avian hospital, research center and a breeding facility on the grounds – as the Bird Paradise is strongly committed to further education programmes and also protect threatened species across the region.
The new Bird Paradise is also located together with Singapore’s other wildlife parks under the umbrella of Mandai Wildlife Reserve and will be a unique destination for all nature-based experiences here.
