Penang Bird Park
There are 3,000 birds kept safely in 150 cages for conservation and breeding purposes in the Penang Bird Park. This sanctuary is conceived as a beautiful garden that has Malay huts located besides cascading waterfalls and Chinese-pattern wooden bridges over natural ponds with lotus, water lilies, and colourful fishes.
This bird park is the first bird park in Malaysia and it is also the largest. It was established in 1988 with a budget of RM1.2 million, the complex is a safe haven for more than 300 species of birds (150 of them are local origin). The species range from tiny rare sunbirds to kingfishers, and even the gigantic eight feet tall ostriches.
The Penang Bird Park is situated in Seberang Jaya in a stunning area. It spans five acres and the whole complex is purpose-built to resemble the birds’ natural homes. The park is also the home to some mouse deer (kancil), crocodiles, giant pythons, turtles, leaf monkeys and many more.
