Langkawi Bird Paradise Wildlife Park is basically a small zoo with an emphasis on birds.
Here is my review.
I went there with low expectations as I know that some privately owned zoos in Malaysia do not follow world best practices when it comes to providing humane conditions for their animals.
In the end it was probably better than I expected though parts of the zoo are in need of upgrading (for the sake of the creatures).
Not So Good Points
This place is worth a visit and children especially will enjoy getting up close to the animals.
These days many people do not agree with zoos on principle and believe that animals are better off in the wild.
I can sympathise with that idealistic view but the sad reality of our over-crowded planet is that if our children cannot see animals in zoos they will never see them at all. The chances for example of seeing this shy mouse deer in the wild for example are practically zero.
Of course that does not mean that zoo owners should not make every effort to make the conditions for the animals as humane as possible.
Langkawi Bird Paradise Wildlife Park has room for improvement in that respect.
