SINGAPORE: Singapore's award-winning parks the Singapore Zoo & Night Safari were transformed into a race course for Safari Zoo Run 2012, an annual event that takes participants through its scenic paths and animal exhibits. The run, which is into its fourth year, attracted some 7,000 participants, both young and old. It was flagged off by MP for Marine Parade GRC, Dr Fatimah Lateef. Organisers said it was conceptualised to commemorate the death anniversary of orang utan Ah Meng, one of Singapore's most adored animal personalities. The run is also aimed at promoting wildlife conservation. The event raised nearly S$80,000. Part of the proceeds will go to the care of endangered animals in the Zoo and Night Safari.
