Create Your Memory of Jurong Bird Park
Through its fifty years, Jurong Bird Park has welcomed 30 million Singaporean and international visitors and to celebrate the many picture-perfect moments shared in the park, an egg-shaped portal “Memories of Jurong Bird Park” will be launched to the public.
Photos taken in Jurong Bird Park can be uploaded on Instagram or Facebook with the hashtag #JBP50 to form a community of memories which will be featured in the portal.
Foster A Flamingo
Jurong Bird Park’s flamingos are among the park’s most well-loved and iconic residents. You can't bring them home, but you may now symbolically Foster a Flamingo with a contribution of $50.
Each contribution comes with an e-certificate and voucher for a flamingo key ring. All contributions will go towards the care of the animals, research, and education programmes across Wildlife Reserves Singapore’s parks and support conservation projects to protect threatened species in Singapore and the region.
Special Edition of Shows!
Come January, visitors can also enjoy special editions of Jurong Bird Park’s shows, with appearances from some of the park’s pioneer birds including Big John the sulphur crested cockatoo at the High Flyers Show. Big John was already a fully grown adult when he first joined the park from the first day of opening, making him well over 50 years old and the park’s oldest cockatoo.
- High Flyers Show (Pools Amphitheatre) – 11.00am & 3.00pm daily
- Kings of the Skies Show (Hawk Arena) – 10.00am & 4.00pm daily
Don't forget to check out the other "retired" birds at the new aviary, housing the park's pioneer generation of birds from the Kings of the Skies Show.
Year-long Activities Planned
The activities in January are part of a series of year-long celebratory events for the parks 50th anniversary. Guests can look forward to a line-up of activities including the park’s very first digital trail in March among other activities and outreach programmes.
