In celebration of its 45th anniversary, Jurong Bird Park has launched the ‘Home Tweet Home’ project which aims to highlight the importance of conservation for Southeast Asia bird species such as the critically endangered Bali Mynah and Black-winged Starling, among many others.
As a kick off, over 30 docents in Wildlife Reserves Singapore (WRS) parks spent Sunday morning lovingly hand painting 45 nest boxes that will be used in conservation captive breeding programmes of two critically endangered bird species – the Bali Mynah and Black-winged Starling in their native Indonesia.
During the weekends from 4 June to 26 June, members of the public who are keen to hand paint their own birdhouse will be able to do so for a small donation towards the Wildlife Reserves Singapore Conservation Fund. The public can also learn about threatened bird conservation through interactive displays.
Other fun activities to look forward to include token feeding sessions, hands-on arts and crafts, face painting to mascot meet and greet sessions.
