Fancy learning more about pandas? Or want to uncover how the manatees are cared for?
The River Safari has launched two new behind-the-scenes programmes that allow visitors to step behind the railings and experience what it is like to care for the animals at the river-themed wildlife park.
Be a Panda Researcher gives participants to gain insights into the endangered pandas through activities such as “dissecting” panda droppings, examining paw prints and other markings, as well as to understand the effort that goes into caring for Kai Kai and Jia Jia’s special dietary needs.
In Fishy Business, participants will be able to explore takes places to keep the Amazon Flooded Forest exhibit going. They will explore the massive life support system of the aquarium, conduct water tests and prepare food and enrichment for manatees and arapaimas.
