Sharing is caring!

Singapore Zoo first opened its doors on 27 June 1973. That makes it 47 this year. Happy Birthday, Singapore Zoo.

Like many others during this time, it is having to have a modified celebration since it is still temporarily closed during the post-circuit breaker phase 2 period.

Happy Birthday, Singapore Zoo!

Now firmly middle-aged, the Singapore Zoo began life as the Singapore Zoological Gardens. It started off with just 270 animals. Today, it is part of Wildlife Reserves Singapore.

Even though we are unable to pay a visit to Singapore Zoo during this time, we thought to share 10 of our favourite stories of Singapore Zoo that we’ve covered over the years.
