The first and largest bird park of its kind in Malaysia, founded during 1988, the wide spread park on the mainland portion of Penang State, has a collection of more than 300 variant species of birds from all over the world, amongst which there are more than 100 species belonging to Malaysian origin.
Located in Seberang Jaya, within the beautifully- landscaped, five-acre Penang Bird Park are two walk-in aviaries and two geodesic-domed enclosures, resembling the birds’ natural habitat.

Gushing waterfalls and natural ponds bubbling with vibrant fishes, lotus and water lilies, creating a home for the free-roaming flamingos, swans, herons and dazzling ducks.

Besides being a tourist attraction, a bird park also plays a vital role in the conservation of endangered bird species. The sanctuary of feathered creatures ensures the survival of nearly-extinct species of the bird world.

Huge Arapaima fish, pythons, giant estuarine crocodile, tortoises and several diversified species of wild kingdom are also protected in the park.
