Our History

The island state of Singapore, despite having lost much of its natural forest cover to urban development, still harbours a valuable diversity of animal and plant species. We have the privilege and obligation to protect what is left of our natural heritage. Zoological institutions have an important role to play in conservation. They are responsible for educating the public and taking a leadership role in creating awareness, as well as addressing the decline in populations of native species.

The four Wildlife Reserves Singapore (WRS) parks - Jurong Bird Park, Night Safari, River Safari and Singapore Zoo – have been playing an active role in spearheading numerous conservation activities over the years.

To further our commitment, the Wildlife Reserves Singapore Conservation Fund (WRSCF) was registered in 2009 as a charity and an institution of public character with the primary purpose of conserving endangered native wildlife.
