I thought it would be to interesting share this news that the Jurong Bird Park is now the only zoological park that houses all three existing species of the blue macaw family.

The park received one Spix’s macaw and two Lear’s macaws each from the Al Wabra Wildlife Preservation in Qatar and the Association for the Conservation of Threatened Parrots in Germany, which would allow visitors to see the birdsat Jurong Bird Park’s Parrot Paradise exhibit from Nov 22.
If you live in Singapore, it might be a great opportunity to meet these endangered birds.
