The Jurong Bird Park was proposed by the late Dr Goh Keng Swee. It is built in the Jurong Industrial Estate. The Bird Park is an example of an 'open concept' park for animals. Of all the species in the Bird Park, 29 of them are endangered and the park has successfully recorded the hatching of a Black Hornbill and a Giant Indian Hornbill in captivity. An interview with the staff reveals that most tourists that visit the park are Korean and Japanese and there are more Asians than Caucasian taking the Panorail.
