Wildlife Reserves Singapore
October is not only the month when the PSLE ends but when Children’s Day takes place! In celebration of children, Wildlife Reserves Singapore (WRS) is inviting them to enter Jurong Bird Park, River Safari, and Singapore Zoo for free – with every full price adult ticket purchased – from 1 to 31 October – which of course includes the PSLE Marking Days 2018!
As if complimentary entry isn’t an awesome enough treat, here are some extras to make the day out to the parks even better! On their visit, children can learn about becoming an eco-ranger, and take on the “Fight the Deadliest Monster Trail” at River Safari or Jurong Bird Park. As they make their way through the trail, children will be educated on the threat of plastic waste to wildlife, and they can pledge to do their part to combat plastic pollution. Upon completion, they stand to receive a delightful “Little Otter, Litter Trouble” book.
Also, keep an eye out for the parks’ favourite wildlife mascots and score Instagram-worthy shots with them when you’re visiting the parks! For more information on ticketing and showtimes, go here.
