The four zoos of Singapore, Jurong Bird Park, Night Safari, River Safari and the Singapore Zoo are ushering in the Year of the Goat with a herd of Activities. They also have some adorable new additions to help celebrate.
Singapore Zoo has eight goat kids roaming around their farmyard and visitors to the zoo will be able to meet them alongside the picturesque Upper Seletar Reservoir.
Visitors can also meet other goats such as the markhor and the Himalayan tahr at Night Safari which are true goats. Some goat imposters are also making appearances at the Safari such as the ‘blue’ bharal and the mouflon.
Jurong Bird Park has some Festive High Flyers eager to celebrate with Sassy the sulphur-crested cockatoo ready to deliver red packets to some lucky visitors. 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).
Visitors will be able to watch the animal’s antics as they receive hidden treats as well. At Night Safari species such as elephants, rhinos, palm civets and wallabies will be uncovering treats. While at River Safari there will be giant ang pows for the giant pandas, red pandas, macaques and squirrel monkeys.
There will also be the opportunity to watch lion dance performances and meet the prosperity mascots who
will be giving away 88 ang pows daily.
