A new exhibit has been created to house some special feathered residents at Jurong Bird Park, said Wildlife Reserves Singapore (WRS).
Situated next to the Hawk Arena, the new aviary accommodates the park’s pioneer generation of birds that have retired from the Kings of the Skies show.
While they might have left the limelight, the eight birds of prey from six different species will continue to delight and enjoy their retirement.
Birds from different species mixing in the aviary is actually good for them, as it stimulates them both physically and mentally, said WRS.
“By opening the aviary to the public, we hope guests can appreciate these elderly animals and learn how modern zoos care for them,” said Dr Cheng Wen Haur, WRS deputy chief executive and chief life sciences officer.
The senior animal care plan seeks to ensure the animals continue to enjoy quality life in their twilight years. — The Straits Times/ANN
