On 18 May 2015, Singapore Zoo announced that Koalas Chan, Idalia, Pellita and Paddle have arrived at Singapore Zoo for their tropical vacation and are ready to meet visitors from 12:00 p.m. on 20 May 2015. Say “G’day” to the four lovely ladies from Down Under, take part in Zoolympix 2015, and go wild withKoalamania this June school holidays.
For five weekends from 30 May to 28 June, young visitors can show their love for the furry marsupials by donning koala masks, and create koala keepsakes such as origami art, pencil huggers and Australian aboriginal-inspired dot paintings. Snap a photo at the zoo’s koala photo illusion wall, upload it on the Koalamania website (http://www.zoo.com.sg/koala-mania/) and stand to win a family holiday to Queensland, Australia with Qantas Airways.
The annual Zoolympix is also back this June with a line-up of fun and educational activities inviting kids (aged 5-12 years) to play Junior Explorers for a day. Held for 15 activity days between 30 May and 28 June, explorers can help save animal friends from the brink of extinction.
In celebration of SG50, local residents visiting Singapore Zoo can visit River Safari on the same day and enjoy 50% off River Safari admission tickets. Singaporeans and permanent residents aged 60 years and above enjoy free admission to Singapore Zoo from 30 May to 30 June 2015.*
