The park also has a new aviary known as Wings of Asia. Home to threatened species such as the Luzon Bleeding Heart Dove and the Bali Mynah this aviary is home to one of the world’s most comprehensive Asian Bird collections. Visitors can take a 15 minute tour of the aviary with a chance to win ang pows  during the Q & A session. (Ang pows are red envelopes with a gift inside).
