Restoring the Ecosystem with Sunway City Kuala Lumpur

This 4 December, celebrate World Wildlife Conservation Day with Sunway City Kuala Lumpur! In a world where the industrial complex is prevalent, many have turned a blind eye to mother nature — resulting in climate change, frequent natural disasters, incessant air and water pollution, and the potential extinction of species. World Wildlife Conservation Day was created to spread awareness on the preservation of Mother Earth’s endangered flora and fauna. We all play a vital role in preserving Mother Earth’s flora and fauna and restoring the ecosystem. World Wildlife Conservation Day has a rich history dating all the way back to the 1600s. Its intention? To highlight the importance and significance of natural resources among individuals. This is the time to reflect, raise awareness, and bring justice to arising issues revolving around our ecosystem! The 2022 theme for World Wildlife Conservation Day is ‘Recovering Key Species for Ecosystem Restoration’ and Sunway City Kuala Lumpur takes this call to action, to conserve the beauty of nature in all we do. As part of our continuous efforts to preserve endangered species, Sunway City Kuala Lumpur developed Sunway Lagoon Wildlife Park – a fully interactive zoo where more than 150 species of animals are being protected and cared for. Explore and interact with our various species of wildlife animals at Sunway Lagoon Wildlife Park! At this family-friendly zoo, you can participate in the feeding times of the animals in the Pet Village, or fawn over their Wildlife Theater performances starring magnificent animal superstars. Take part in the park’s ‘Wild Encounters’ and get a chance to rub shoulders with a multitude of animals. Read on to find out more about what variety of animal encounters Sunway Lagoon Wildlife Park has to offer! What’s poppin’ at Sunway Lagoon Wildlife Park? Sunway City Kuala Lumpur has collaborated with the Wildlife and National Parks Department (Perhilitan) in launching their ‘River Terrapin Conservation Awareness Programme’. Through this programme, they strive to preserve and protect the critically-endangered species by educating the public on factors affecting their population decline. As the saying goes, ‘prevention is better than cure’. Learn all about conservation activities like egg collection, incubation, and post-hatch care in an effort to curb the extinction of River Terrapins at this little nook in Sunway Lagoon Wildlife Park! Thumbs up with YB Dato Abdul Kadir, Director of Perhilitan and Calvin Ho, Executive Director of Sunway Theme Parks! Tiger Land is home to Asha and Samson.

From their diet to their distinctive stripes, you can learn virtually everything about the dignified duo at Tiger Land!

What’s the Buzz Around Sunway Wildlife Park?

Once upon a time, there was a harmonious park, nestled cozily within the vibrant township of Sunway City Kuala Lumpur. It carries the illustrious name of Sunway Wildlife Park, and is home to many exotic creatures originating from all over the globe… Located in Sunway Lagoon Theme Park, Sunway Wildlife Park is an interactive zoo where you can get up close and personal with more than 150 species of animals. Here, you can experience a line-up of exciting activities such as animal shows at the Wildlife Theatre, parades, character appearances, animal feeding, informative tours with our rangers – the list goes on! Get up close and personal with myriads of exotic animals here in Sunway Wildlife Park! The park also doubles as a conservation site for endangered animals, so you can learn about their species, habitat and ongoing efforts in keeping them safe and well at Sunway Wildlife Park. Among these species are the rare majestic blonde felines, known as Zola (meaning love) and Zuri (meaning beautiful) of the White Lion Kingdom – the Simba and Nala of Kuala Lumpur! Imagine a world in the future where our fearless felines are seen only in history textbooks and encyclopedias. With the population of lions dwindling at an unprecedented rate across Africa in the past few decades – to the extent that the species are listed as “vulnerable” by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), efforts to conserve these big cats have sped up. Meet the mighty king and queen of the White Lion Kingdom. Lion count has dropped by half since The Lion King premiered in theatres in 1994 (Wildlife Conservation Network, WNC). As part of our pledge to doing well by doing good and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, Sunway City Kuala Lumpur is dedicated and actively participates in this effort to protect the lions by establishing the White Lion Kingdom. Fun fact: Sunway Wildlife Park proudly welcomed Zola and Zuri from the reserves of Timbavati and Kruger in South Africa back in 2015. Due to their colour mutation which blessed the mammals with blonde to ghostly white fur (commonly mistaken as albinism), the white lions face misconceptions such as being unable to camouflage well and lack in hunting skills – which are all untrue! They’re just as fearsome as their tawny counterparts! Enjoying a league of their own, Zola and Zuri can rightfully say this: “You can’t sit with us”. Where white lions once ruled, why are their existence now slowly dissipating? Similarly, from the dozens of biodiversity loss stories you’ve heard, our predatory felines are dying off from habitat loss, illegal poaching and a decrease in prey that left them with little options but to venture into human communities in search of food – eventually leading them to be killed in retaliation. But, this can’t keep happening! If you feel removed from the issue at hand, get this: the preservation of lions indirectly affects our food supply. Without lions, herbivore populations would be left [...]

Exotic Sapphire Blue-Eyed White Tigers

Tiger Land Samson and Asha are a pair of exotic white tiger descendants from India, the rarest sub-species of tiger in the world! The sapphire blue-eyed Samson. The white tiger’s origin was first recorded in India between 1556 and 1605. In 1915, a white tiger – later named Mohan – was captured from the wild by a Maharaja and reared in his palace. It is believed that the white tiger population today is descended from Mohan. As with all tigers, white tigers’ stripes are like fingerprints, with no two tigers having the same pattern. Get a closer look at Samson and Asha at the Tiger Land and discover their unique characteristics from the way they mark their territories, their diet to sexual maturity.

The White Lion Kingdom

The White Lion Kingdom Have you seen a white lion before? Meet Zola and Zuri, blonde predatory felines from South Africa Timbavati and southern region of Kruger Park – home to the incredibly rare and beautiful white lions! Zola (meaning love), is king of The White Lion Kingdom. Lioness, Zuri (meaning beautiful),interacting with her young fans! Contrary to popular belief, white lions are not albinos. Their near-white to blonde fur is due to a rare condition of a recessive mutation in the gene that results in reduced pigmentation. This condition is known as ‘leucism’. White lions are symbols of leadership and pride to local communities in the Timbavati region. Photo credit: The Star Just like some newborns, white lions can sleep up to 20 hours a day! In the past 50 years, the white lion population in the wild has drastically decreased and continues to face threats of extinction. They are indiscriminately killed and human activities are taking up their natural habitat. Zola and Zuri were brought into the Wildlife Park as part of our role in conserving the species. Learn more about their habitat destruction, life span and diets at The White Lion Kingdom! Experience it at Sunway Lagoon Other experiences in Wildlife Park Also check out

Into the Rimba

Rimba Reptiles are cold-blooded with hard, dry scales for skin. With no fur or feathers for insulation, they cannot stay warm on a cold day, and without sweat glands, they cannot cool off on a hot day. Instead, they move into the sun or into the shade as needed. Swing by Rimba (Malay word for jungle) and say hi to our handful of reptile species. The lush greenery at Rimba’s entrance. Have you seen a snake this large? Iguanas have strong jaws with sharp teeth and have sharp tails they use mainly for defence. Caution:  When at Rimba, tapping on the glass cage is not permitted! Please be gentle!
