Time Out says

Celebrate 50 years of the Singapore Zoo with its Golden Zoobilee with a lineup of exciting activities in the months ahead. Already happening from now until August 27 is the kid-friendly Art-Zoo Happy Zoobilee trail – eight animal sculptures created for the event including elephants and orangutans will be on display in the zoo. Kids will also get to interact with tactile play elements and participate in fringe activities including animal interaction sessions and craft workshops along the trail, which ends with a 21 metre-long inflatable art playground. 

Next up is the Zoo Adventure Tour: Zoobilee Edition from June 27 to August 27. It is a private buggy tour that uncovers the zoo’s 50-year history and includes animal interactions and feeding sessions. Bookings for the tour are already open. 

You can also get a behind-the-scenes look at insects in the Singapore Zoo’s Fragile Forest. The zoo will be launching Backstage Pass: Incredible Invertebrates on August 6. The tour includes interactive elements such as getting to identify butterfly eggs in the Butterfly Aviary. 

Lastly, run for a good cause amid the zoo’s wildlife and greenery at the Mandai Wildlife Run (previously known as the Safari Zoo Run), which will be returning from September 23 to 24 this year with a new 5km race category for seniors. If you don’t particularly like running, there are other activities such as health and wellness activities, sustainability-themed workshops, and animal interactions which will be held alongside the run. A portion of proceeds from sign-ups, which start on June 27, will go towards supporting wildlife conservation efforts.
