The original concept for the Singapore Zoo was first touted in the 1980s. It was envisioned by the chairman of the Singapore Zoo, Dr Ong Swee Law.
10 years late on 26 May 1994 the zoo opened at a cost of S$63 million.
Over the years the zoo has experienced a number of significant births including the first Sunda pangolin and red giant flying squirrel in captivity.
