Set in a
rainforest environment, Singapore Zoos world famous "open concept” offers
the opportunity to experience and be inspired by the wonders of nature. Home to
over 2,500 specimens from 315 species, 29% of which are threatened, the Zoo has
attained a strong reputation internationally for its conservation initiatives
and breeding programmes.
To better meet the healthcare needs of its animals and working towards its
aspiration to become a leading global centre of excellence for veterinary
healthcare and research, a purpose-built Wildlife Healthcare and Research
Centre was set up in March 2006. In 2009, 1.6 million visitors enjoyed the
experiential learning experience at the 28-hectare award-winning Zoo. Singapore
Zoo is part of Wildlife Reserves Singapore. The Zoo is a designated rescued
wildlife center by the governing authority.
