BE IN THE KNOW Calling our 24-hour wildlife rescue hotline is something most of you may be familiar with. But every second before and after making that phone call is just as important to the animal as it should be to you – because you can HELP the animal directly by reducing stress or ensuring their safety.

‘FOWL’ PLAY – WHAT DO YOU THINK? Poultry (including chickens, quails and pheasants) are not allowed to be sold or displayed in Singapore’s bird shops, under the Pet shop licensing conditions for sale and display of birds laid out by the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA).

TALK TO ME LIKE BATS DO! If you are lucky enough to have bats roosting in your garden, you may hear them squeaking or squabbling at times.

Meet Linda, a dog-faced fruit bat, who w...

THE LOOK OF LOVE? ಠ_ಠ Legend is a Chinese stripe-necked turtle whose shell is extremely deformed due to malnutrition and environmental factors, possibly due to being kept as an exotic (illegal) pet in a small confined space. Habitat loss and hunting are common contributors to the decline of a species population, but so is the wildlife trade. And Chinese stripe-necked turtles are one such example, classified as an endangered species on the IUCN Red List. To meet the demands of the exotic...

AN UNDESIRED FATALITY Imagine the worst sore throat you ever endured, or a large fish bone stuck in your throat. Poor Monsty barely endured the fishing hook wedged in her mouth, and it must have painful and excruciatingly uncomfortable for her. Sadly, she succumbed to her injuries. The Asiatic soft-shelled turtles are a native species, but Singapore also imports several thousands of wild-caught Asiatic soft-shelled turtles annually for turtle soup. You can help wild animals by not buying the...

CASHEWNUT THE YELLOW-FOOTED TORTOISE Likely snatched from the wild and smuggled in cruel conditions across multiple borders over multiple days, CashewNut was kept as an illegal pet in an uncompromising space, and was rescued as an abandoned tortoise in a residential estate.
