SINGAPORE - A new free-ranging area for orang utans at the Singapore Zoo lets visitors walk underneath the exhibit for a different glimpse of the animals.

The exhibit, which was launched earlier this month to complement the zoo's Ah Meng-zing experience, features hammocks and interconnecting vines for the orang utans to explore.

An average of five orang utans hang out in the exhibit daily to enjoy the treetop haven, Wildlife Reserves Singapore said in a press release on Tuesday (June 21).

 

Visitors to the zoo have a final weekend (June 25 and 26) before the June holidays end to enjoy the Ah Meng-zing experience, which transforms the zoo into a living classroom where one can learn about what they can do to save the planet and its animals.

Activities include meet-and-greet sessions with mascots, craft workshops and animal enrichment trails.
