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.
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 programs. To better meet the healthcare needs of its animals and working towards its aspiration to become a leading global center of excellence for veterinary healthcare and research, a purpose-built Wildlife Healthcare and Research Center 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 center by the governing authority.
