The Kuala Lumpur Bird Park (called ‘Taman Burung Kuala Lumpur’ in Malay) is a popular public aviary in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It is located adjacent to the Perdana Lake Gardens of Kuala Lumpur and the size of this bird park is around 20.9 acres. The main feature that distinguishes KL Bird Park from any other bird parks is the concept of free-flight.
Receiving an average of 200,000 visitors every year, KL Bird Park had been recognized as being one of the most popular tourist attractions in Malaysia.
Entering the door of KL Bird Park is as if you are stepping into an enormous bird cage, where visitors will have a chance to witness free flying birds at close proximity. Approximately 2000 birds of 200 local and foreign species lives together in a perfectly balanced community in this semi-natural, man-made environment.
One of the most prominent evidence that these birds have adapted so well to this environment is that they are already able to breed naturally. They search for their suitable nesting areas; bountiful sources of fallen leaves, branches and twigs provide the suitable nesting materials for these birds to build their own nests; they care for their babies until they grow up and the cycle continues year after year.
Therefore, this concept of free-flight not only provide the patrons of the park to experience the close resemblance of life in the tropical rainforest, but it is also perhaps the best way to ensure the survival and species continuity of these birds.
KL Bird Park had actively begun its breeding programmes since the year 2002. Various species of birds, both local and foreign, had successfully being bred in the park under the programme, with some showing encouraging progress and improvement year after year. Some of the successfully bred birds are Emu, African Grey Parrot, Yellow-billed Stork, Silver Pheasant, Sun Conure, Milky Stork, Red Lory, Indian Blue Peafowl, Red Junglefowl, Straw-headed Bulbul and Malay Peacock Pheasant.
