The first & largest bird park of its kind in Malaysia. Established since 1988, the 5-acre park on the mainland portion of Penang State, has a collection of more that 300 species of birds from all over the world, of which more than 150 species are of Malaysian Species.

More than 3,000 birds in this park are carefully and scientifically housed in more than 150 cages for the breeding and conservation purpose. While the Geodesic Domes and 2 giant sized Walk-in-Aviaries, keep hundreds of tamed birds which offers priceless memory and exciting moment for visitors, after hand-feeding them. Exotic birds ranging from tiny Sunbirds to huge, gigantic 8-foot tall Ostriches frolic in an environment that imitates their natural habitat. Penang Bird Park is particularly proud of its , sunbirds, and pheasants collection.

 

Penang Bird Park is the bird-park loved by the expert ornithologists as well as for the people of all ages who love birds.

Built in a garden concept, the park boasts of its beautiful landscaping with the impressive collections of hibiscus, orchids, cacti, bamboo and palm trees. Cascading waterfalls and natural ponds flourish with colourful fishes, lotus and water lilies, creating a home for the free-roaming pelicans, flamingos, swans, egrets, storks, herons and colourful ducks.

Observe from the Chinese-style wooden bridges that traverse the water or relax in the little Malay huts that dot the park to enjoy the beauty of nature at play. A cosy air-conditioned restaurant in the park serves delicious local and western food.

Penang Bird Park is also a home to several species of deers including the smallest deer in the world - Mouse-Deers. Giant Alapaima fish, pythons, monitor-lizards, tortoises and other species of wildlife are also exhibited in this park.

Penang Bird Park being well-praised for its excellent collection of Malaysian bird species, is the home of more than 150 species of these beautiful tropical birds. Due to the vase diversity in the natural habitats of Malaysian birds, ranching from the coastal mangrove swamps to the high attitude of the dense tropical rain forests, it will not be possible to view all these birds in their natural habitats in one's life time. However, one can view these birds in the comfort at Penang Bird Park, where the birds are living in their imitated natural habitats. More than 100 species of these Malaysian birds are breeding readily in captivity at Penang Bird Park.

Since the establishment of Penang Bird Park in 1988, the park has been very patiently collecting different species of birds throughout the years. The Malaysian bird species form the most beautiful and unique bird collections in Penang Bird Park. Malaysian birds are some of the most beautiful birds to behold due to their rainbow colouration of their feathers. The Flycatchers, Minivets, Kingfishers, Fairy Bluebirds, the Pheasants, Partridges, and the tiny Flowerpeckers and Sunbirds are some of the birds that are so colourful that is beyond the description by words.

Penang Bird Park is also very active in the conservation of endangered birds species, especially the Malaysian birds, eg. the Nicobar Pigeon, the Peacock Pheasants, the Fireback Pheasants, Partridges, the Owls, Hornbills, Eagles and others.


With more than 300 species of birds from all over the world, Penang Bird Park is a "Heaven for Photographers". Many species of birds have been trained and tamed to "pose" for photography purpose.

Penang Bird Park has been graced by the generous donation of other types of animals from the general public, which added extra attraction to Penang Bird Park. Some of the animals include Green Iguana, 8 foot long gaint Monitor Lizards, 18 foot long giant Pythons, 10 foot long Arapaima (fresh water fish from the Amazon River in South America), giant Soft-shelled Turtle, Spotted Fallow Deers, tiny Mouse-deers, Bawean Deers and others. Penang Bird Park is also a natural home for a group of more than 20 heads of timid Leaf-monkeys, which feeds on the succulent leaves in the park.
