Safari Zoo Run 2016: Mark Your Calendar on 27 and 28 February!

Mark your calendar on 27 and 28 February 2016. Safari Zoo Run, Singapore’s wildest race, returns with competitive and family-oriented runs during that weekend.

The idea of Safari Zoo Run was mooted by Ah Meng the Sumatran orang utan who died of old age in February 2008. Not only he was well-liked, we can say Ah Meng had remained as an icon of Singapore Zoo till today. A piece of good news. Singapore Zoo will be unveiling an orangutan which will be tasked to continue Ah Meng’s legacy.

The objectives of Safari Zoo Run are to encourage family bonding and raise awareness on wildlife conservation. Embracing social responsibility is a plus. Part proceeds from this year’s race will go towards aiding the conservation efforts of Singapore Zoo and Wildlife Reserves Singapore.
