Wildlife Reserves Singapore is a self-funded organisation based in Singapore which manages the majority of zoos in the country. The organisation currently manages the Singapore Zoo, the Night Safari, the Jurong Bird Park and the River Safari in Singapore.[3]

Effects of the COVID-19 pandemic[edit]

In response to the Singapore government's call on 3 April 2020 to create a circuit breaker to help slow the spread of infection in Singapore,[4] WRS announced on its Facebook page that it would close Jurong Bird Park, Night Safari, River Safari and Singapore Zoo from 7 April.[5]
