Happy New Year !
1st Jan 2021, by Animal Concerns Research & Education Society (ACRES)

2020 was extraordinary year for most. Covid-19 changed many of our lives in more ways than one. For us at ACRES, we had to make changes to how our team worked with half working from home. We also lost an fellow ACRES family member which affected all of us. Fortunately, our 24-hour wildlife rescue carried on as essential services. With minimal manpower and just a small handful of dedicated volunteers, we managed to carry on as usual. We did not let Covid-19 hamper our efforts to help the voiceles...

ARE WE READY SINGAPORE?

Should Wildlife Stay Or Go? - Science Or Opinions ..
23rd Nov 2020, by Animal Concerns Research & Education Society (ACRES)

SHOULD WILDLIFE STAY OR GO? - SCIENCE OR OPINIONS ALONE MATTER? A lot of you are concerned about the ongoing discussions on whether wildlife should stay or go. While we are heartened to see that public opinion is being sought, we are deeply concerned on the following based on the questions asked: 1. Should wildlife be managed based on public opinion only? As Minister Desmond Lee rightly shared during a human-wildlife conflict conference in 2019, "Homes fringe many of our nature areas, and Si...

Meet Snap (yes, we know, not the most creative of names for a common snapping turtle) as he is busy having a go at his enrichment! Although his snapping is not as powerful as his distant cousin Durian, an alligator snapping turtle, it is still fascinating to watch him chomp down on his enrichment. Snap and Durian are amongst the 47 turtles in our care at our wildlife rescue centre. Consider being an Animal Guardian (give.asia/animalguardiansacres) today!
