BIRD REHABILITATION AT ACRES This little zebra dove couldn't be reunited with his parents, so he's getting the warmth he needs from our incubators as he should from his nest. As he and other nestlings grow bigger, they are transitioned to large cages where they learn to feed before graduating to the aviary- a home to fruit-bearing plants to benefit frugivorous birds and a training ground for full independence! As a charity organisation with limited resources, we strive to make the best of ou...

STANDING UP FOR ANIMALS Or climbing. Sometimes we swim or lay prone on our tummies. Our wildlife rescue officers do their best they can at work. Our entire team battles hard to campaign for animal protection in Singapore: for the illegal wildlife trade, for enabling policy changes at the grassroots level, to be empowered in our own capacity as a collective individual. You see, for the staff and the volunteers, it’s neither about the money nor the fame. Like you, our supporters and callers ...

(TURTLE) SOUP FOR THE SOUL? THINK AGAIN! Turtle soup is a delicacy in many parts of Asia, consumed for its speculated nutritional value and anti-aging properties. Live soft-shelled turtles are sold legally for the meat trade in Singapore however, the methods of procurement and housing of these live turtles are highly questionable. Rafael, an Asiatic soft-shelled turtle, was found by the Animal & Veterinary Service (AVS) and subsequently sent to the ACRES Wildlife Rescue Centre. Rafael arrived ...

POACHING OF WILD BIRDS IN SINGAPORE A tip-off alerted us to the illegal trapping of wild birds at 708 Yishun Avenue 5. The ACRES Animal Crime Investigation Unit (ACIU) visited the area and found an active bird trap placed among other birds in cages that were hung on a tree. Thanks to the informant and the National Parks Board (Nparks), the trap has since been removed and no further poaching activities were observed during our monitoring. The ACIU has handled around 50 cases last year, specifi...

IGUANA AWARENESS DAY Shangria, once kept as an illegal pet, stands magnificently as she gets weighed by our animal caregivers. These pre-historic looking herbivores, although non-native to Singapore, are found in some of Singapore's green spaces, often illegally released by their owners. In some countries, released pet green iguanas are considered pests whose population is managed by removal and culling because of damage to gardens. Please say no to the illegal wildlife trade! #IguanaAwa...

SO-FISH-TICATED SENTIENCE It is not uncommon for us to find fallen bags of #ornamentalfish in Sungei Tengah.

SO FAR FROM HOME Barni and Queen B were fortunate to be back in their homeland in Malaysia. Unfortunately, Ernie, another giant Asian pond turtle like Queen B, was not scheduled for the trip home because of a shell deformity. Unable to fully retract her head, Ernie becomes vulnerable to predation, and so the ACRES Wildlife Rescue Centre will be her permanent sanctuary – her home away from home. You can help Ernie and other turtles by being a Wildlife Supporter. Food for the animals in our c...

As you read this post, Barni and Queen B await at the Malaysian checkpoint to complete the necessary documentation for their final release into the wild, thanks to the support of National Parks Board and Perhilitan. Malaysian giant turtles like Barni, the largest freshwater turtle species in South-east Asia, are endangered on the IUCN list. Threats faced by Malaysian giant turtles and giant Asian pond turtles, like Queen B, include the meat trade, demand in traditional Chinese medicine and the i...

Phew! Talk about shell shock... Queen B is our superhero and heroine of her own kind, the giant Asian pond turtle, non-native to #Singapore. The condition and contortions of her old shell wounds stunned us all. Clearly, her battle scars hide a painful and traumatic story that she suffered, aside from longhaul horrifics that victims of the illegal pet trade endure. Thankfully, Queen B's internal organs and locomotion hadn't been affected by the mysterious trauma and her shell had healed over....
