Singlife has announced its adoption of the Orchid Waterfall nature attraction found at the newly opened Bird Paradise in Singapore. This adoption is in line with the insurer group’s sustainability and conservation efforts.
Owned by the Mandai Wildlife Group, the Bird Paradise is also Asia’s largest bird park. The Orchid Waterfall, located at the park’s entrance, is a celebration of the site’s local history. The site was formerly the location of Mandai Orchid Gardens, which was once the country’s oldest and largest commercial orchid farm. Being the first major feature of the park, Singlife’s Orchid Waterfall acts as a thermal sink that absorbs heat from its surroundings, and in the process providing comfort to visitors.
Singlife head of sustainability Chia Ko-Wen said that adopting the Orchid Waterfall represents a natural choice for the insurer as a homegrown company, as orchids are also a distinct part of Singapore’s national heritage and history.
“At Singlife, we also want to do our part to celebrate and protect the natural biodiversity of our garden city, so that future generations can still experience and enjoy the richness of our natural ecosystem. We are proud to join forces with the likes of Mandai Wildlife Group who are stewards of wildlife conservation and sustainability in Singapore. Together, through our shared resources and efforts, we can chart a better way to a sustainable future,” Ko-Wen said.
Earlier this year, the company announced a rebranding following the acquisition of Aviva Singapore in 2022.
