Singapore, 27 November 2015 – Koalas Cantik, Sayang, Nila and Manja, who have been guests of Singapore since April this year, will soon pack their bags and head back Down Under. Visitors have until 3 January 2016 to visit the koalas, after which they will be quarantined for a month prior to their departure.

To celebrate their last six months here, and wish them well, Singapore Zoo is throwing a furry farewell party every weekend this December for the lovely quartet previously known as Chan, Idalia, Paddle and Pellita.

The four furry ladies arrived in April this year, and are a precious gift from Australia to Singapore on the occasion of Singapore’s 50th anniversary of independence, and the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Australia and Singapore.

Be part of the celebrations at Singapore Zoo and enjoy koala-themed activities including mascot appearances, game challenges, party crafts, magic shows and an interactive story trail. And don’t forget to pop by the Australian Zone to bid your personal farewells to the koalas!
