The Circuit Breaker period may be over but if you are not ready to head out just yet, there’s good news for you! Following the popularity of its Hello from the Wild Side initiative which allows everyone to enjoy fun, meaningful wildlife experiences without leaving the comfort of home or even the office, Wildlife Reserves Singapore (WRS) has launched an expanded range of virtual offerings, promising even more unique interactions with animals.

How about some exclusive behind-the-scenes with Singapore Zoo’s Asian elephants? Backstage Pass offers a private 30-minute session where participants can venture to the Elephants of Asia exhibit and get a special (virtual) up-close experience with the majestic, gentle animals, and even take part in their enrichment activities. The session will be led by WRS’ animal care team who will share inside stories about the all-female herd and also how they care for them.

For those who are looking to celebrate a special occasion or to simply make someone’s day, sending a Personalised Message can help to do just that. Members of the public can send special video greetings with personalised messages to friends and loved ones featuring our Yellow Naped Amazon (who can even sing a birthday song!), African Penguins, Capybara, Oriental Pied Hornbill and Palm Cockatoo.

Finally, our ever popular Group Sessions now includes more of our feathered friends from Jurong Bird Park’s High Flyers Show and Night Safari’s stars from Creatures of the Night!. Group Sessions gives a unique glimpse into their routines and enrichment activities, from the insider perspective. Limited to only three user profiles at any time, participants will enjoy a personal touch to their experience with our animal care team. Interested members of the public can now choose from five different sessions with:

·        Capybara & Great White Pelican (River Safari)

·        African Penguins (Singapore Zoo)

·        Oriental Pied Hornbill & White Cockatoo (Jurong Bird Park)

·        Double Yellow-Headed Amazon, Scarlet Macaw, Toco Toucan (Jurong Bird Park) *NEW

·        Great Horned Owl, Asian small-clawed Otters & White Raccoon (Night Safari) *NEW

The interactive sessions range from $50 to $250, and include contributions which go towards supporting ongoing efforts by WRS to care for and protect wildlife and habitats across Southeast Asia.
