Singapore, September 12, 2008 – All three Wildlife Reserves Singapore (WRS) parks – Jurong Bird Park, Night Safari and Singapore Zoo have been accorded with Michelin ratings. Jurong Bird Park received two-star rating while Night Safari and Singapore Zoo both received three-star ratings, with three-star being the highest.

“It is such great honour that all WRS parks have been given star ratings in the Michelin Green Guide Singapore. This is truly an accomplishment for all of us at Jurong Bird Park, Night Safari and Singapore Zoo. The rating is a testament of the team’s dedication towards conservation and providing unusual wildlife experiences. We will continue to do our best to bring engaging wildlife encounters to visitors and leave an everlasting impression as they learn more about endangered animals and birds from their visit,” said Ms Fanny Lai, Group CEO, Wildlife Reserves Singapore.

Michelin has been publishing travel guides for more than 100 years, helping travellers to see in a glance a destination’s most outstanding attractions using a ‘star’ rating system. Attractions are rated according to one, two or three stars with one-star rating for attraction that is interesting, two-star rating for attraction that is recommended and three-stars which is highly recommended.

Like many other attractions the three WRS parks were graded by Michelin’s representatives based on a set of criteria among which include convenience and visitor-friendliness, quality of reception and visit, popularity, the number of activities offered, authenticity, charm and unity.

The MICHELIN Singapore Green Guide, an annual publication, will be available in bookstores starting September 2008 and will be distributed across three continents: Europe, North America and Asia.
