Zoos and Sanctuaries that have New Guinea Singing Dogs


NGSDs are kept at many zoos and sanctuaries open to the public. Some have them on exhibit, and others have them in the outreach/education departments where socialized Singers delight the public as they serve as ambassadors. Before you plan to visit one of these facilities please contact it and ask if they still keep NGSDs, as neither this list nor the zoo’s web site may reflect recent changes. If the Singers are in outreach, ask what time they will be performing or you might miss them. The zoos are listed in no particular order, but those with a special relationship with the NGSDCS have an asterisk.
