Animal Encounters

 

1. Objectives

We hope to bring nature closer to visitors, increase general awareness related to wildlife conservation and illegal wildlife trade, and inspire respect and appreciation of animals. We are hoping that through our event, visitors are empowered to make informed conservation choices and live a greener lifestyle.

 

2. Content

On the first, second and third Sunday of every month*, there will be an "Animal Encounters" activity to give visitors a close experience with animals. Experienced animal keepers will introduce our animal ambassadors and convey their stories.
