Zoo Negara - The Five Pillars We Stand On
We believe that education is the only key in creating awareness on wildlife conservation. Zoo Negara is an open classroom for young minds to learn and nurture their interest and care for wildlife. Check out our Education Package for schools and even for you!
What will the world be without wildlife? Conserving Malaysian wildlife is one of our main missions. Animals such as the False Gharial and the Milky Storks are highly endangered wildlife that is not so well known compared to the Malayan Tiger or the Bornean Orang Utan. Zoo Negara has managed to breed these two species and we are currently working with the local Wildlife Department in releasing them back into the wild!
Zoo Negara provides a haven knowledge and experience for all. Researchers students from the Zoology, Biology and Veterinary fields have a multitude of choices when doing their research at the zoo as we have more than 400 species to choose from. We welcome everybody (includiing foreigners) to enter our doors of knowledge.
Entertainment is part of the Malaysian culture and the zoo is not an exception. Our animal shows potray the best in animal behaviour, all natural. Our animal shows are educational so visitors will be able to learn and have fun at the same time. Our shows are definitely not circus acts.
Zoo Negara strives to provide the very best in assisting other zoos in Malaysia through its vast strong knowledge and experience in the field of wildlife management. Further more, we are actively involved in the national and international zoological community thereby contributing to Malaysia's overall national role.
