YOUR STARTING POINT FOR HUMANE EDUCATION Want to educate your students on how to co-exist with wildlife and the environment?

SMUGGLED AND DUMPED: TALE OF TWO HEDGEHOGS Someone who chose to keep two hedgehogs as illegal pets also decided to abandon them. Two hedgehogs were found wandering lost on 20th and 22nd June 2018 in Yishun Park. We rescue abandoned illegal exotic wildlife in Singapore a little more often than we like / should. The worst part of rescuing these prohibited species is the lack of leads that can bring justice for these animals. We need more people to end the illegal wildlife trade. If you have i...

TODAY IS WORLD SSSSNAKES DAY 🐍
16th Jul 2018, by Animal Concerns Research & Education Society (ACRES)

Josh our wildlife rescue volunteer shares about his experience with snakes today: "There was a moment during my first python rescue as I was holding her by the head that I caught her gaze and saw her staring me straight in the eye. It was then that it became apparent how much more scared she was of me than I ever was of the snake. Five months later I’ve now encountered and rescued countless snakes from tiny wolf snakes and paradise tree snakes to spitting #cobras and pit #vipers. Each one in...

SHARKS HAVE PERSONALITIES TOO! Yesterday was Sharks Awareness Day! Here is a little sharing from Naomi Clark-Shen a marine conservationist: "It is mostly mammals who are acknowledged as having personalities, but did you know that #sharks do as well? Some sharks like to consistently socialise with other sharks, while others are more '#introvert' and like to hang out alone. Another study even found that they have certain ‘#bestfriends’ whom they hang out with more than others! Sharks an...

I AM SURE YOU’VE HEARD THIS BEFORE 🐦 “I am trying to catch my lost pet bird” is the usual answer we get from most of the poachers. Here is one. Two individuals have been observed to be setting up traps for oriental magpie robin birds at the car park of Republic Polytechnic. While Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) and the Singapore Police Force have attended to this case and taken action, the current Wild Animals and Birds Act (WABA) needs more teeth to regulate poss...
