Be a Junior Wildlife reporter at Jurong Bird Park

[ Media Invite ]

This December, a lot of junior reporters are flocking to Jurong Bird Park.

Every weekend, from now till 29Dec, kids can register at Penguin-razzi to get up close to the penguins ! This activity is for kids 5-12 years old, and pre-registration is required.

Kids get to learn more about their favourite penguins.
– Where do they live?
– What do they eat?
– Why their coat is black on top and white below?
– Do penguins happy-feet? (joking)

Jurong Birdpark penguins

Meet and Greet session, everyone say hello to Chocolate. This 9 month old African penguin is the latest celebrity penguin hatched and raised at Jurong Bird Park !

Kids will also learn about the different types of penguins. We all know the majestic Emperor, and Rockhopper. What about African and Humboldt? More penguin activities can be found at Penguin Coast.

Oh, the African penguins at Jurong Bird Park are well adapted to the tropics already. Watch Chocolate swim and chase after his keeper here.

Remember to grab a copy of the Penguin Times.
Activities and knowledge are waiting for kids to discover 🙂

Why are kids running so fast across the bridge?

We are at Lory Loft again, and we love to feed the cute lories ! Each cup of nectar costs $3, but the smiles from the kids are priceless 🙂

At 1.30PM, we head back to Birdz of Play for the next Penguin activity.

At Penguin Party, join senior reporters for some dance and photography “lesson”. He will teach the kids how to be “reporters’.

The penguin mascots “Pengu and Pengy” will be organising a wet and wild penguin party for the kids. Expect dance, songs and magic show too.

Bubbles never fail to excite the kids.

After taking photo with the penguin mascots, all the kids get to enjoy one ice cream.

There are plenty of fringe activities to keep the kids busy 🙂

Sand art never fail to attract the kids, offering precious moments for parents to rest one corner.

Penguin face-painting anyone, or maybe design your own reporter note book cover 🙂

After all the penguin activities, our kids turn their attention to the water playground at Birdz of Play. This playground needs no invitation.

Happy to partner Cheekiemonkies at the birdy playground 🙂

Jurong Bird Park for kids

[Media Invite]

What are these cute Lories doing at Jurong Bird Park?

We were invited to immerse in Jurong Bird Park’s June holiday activities. After a hearty meal at Bongo Burgers, we say Hello to Dora and Diego. They will be appearing on Sat and Sun at 1230 (Amphitheatre), and some families will get to photoshoot with Dora and Diego.

Kids are repeating the phase “Where are we going, clap-clap-clap, Jurong Bird Park !”

We are able to enjoy Jurong Bird Park today, thanks to the late Dr Goh Keng Swee’s foresight.

Little kids will be looking forward to their own exploration. Over 5 continents, we have to identify the different bird species, and get the stamps 🙂

Our kids are crazy about penguins, no thanks to Happy Feet and Madagascar. Daddy did not tell them about Bird Park’s special camping with penguins package 🙂

We miss the monorail, is it decommissioned already? Daddy could still remember how the monorail offers uninterrupted view from the top, and we could witness how the red and pink flamingos transform the pond into a sea of red.

So many birds are roaming Jurong Bird Park, there is really no quiet corner.

We absolutely love our feathered friends’ company.

Daddy took the opportunity to remind the boys that it is no fun to be living in a cage.

Daddy love the Kingfishers, so colourful but skillful fish hunters.

Kids love the ducks ! No Donald Duck, but these quacks are so handsome.

We even witness the feeding frenzy at the Ibis corner. The birds were busy spearing the poor fishes in the pond.

Next, Daddy brought the two older boys to attend Dr Squawk’s expedition. We travel around the world to know more about the different bird species. Our teacher kept the class curious about the magnitude of bird species, we even got to feel the weight difference in bone density between a flightless bird and one which can fly.

(This class is recommended for kids age 5+)

At the Breeding and Research centre, there is a nursery and even incubators, showcasing the newly born chicks. An eye-opener for us, as we get to follow a chick’s growing up phases.

Daddy told the boys that our Philippine friends would love to savour the balut.

We even learn about how birdnests are constructed (not those bird-saliva type which Chinese treats as delicacy)

While the older boys were enriching their knowledge, the two smaller ones were busy at “Birdz of prey Play”.

No trip to birdpark is complete without a trip to the waterfall 🙂
But as we trek through the “African Waterfall Aviary“, try to identify the birds hiding in the branches or even fishing in the stream.

Who are the King of the Skies?

Although the Eagles, Falcons and Hawks are often admired, the vultures have an important job as scavengers (Click if if are curious about how Tibetans offer their bodies to the vultures)

The last attraction for us was at the Lory Loft. Kids will have ample opportunity to feed the cute Lories. We can purchase the honey-mixture feed for $3 per cup, but if you go in the afternoon, you might be able to find some left-over cups, as the birds are full 🙂
