Jurong Bird Park in Singapore opened
to the public in 1971 and is located on a plot of land
with an area of about 50 acres, i.e. 202,000mē. Like the
Singapore Zoo (fig.)
and the Night Safari (fig.),
it is operated by Wildlife Reserves Singapore.
The park consists in part of a
landscaped garden, complete with lakes, artificial
waterfalls and wetlands. Birds are exhibited both in
cages and in huge lofts, where they can freely fly
around and come close to visitors.
