WHERE DO WE GO NOW? Do we wait till he moves or do we keep going? It’s a common response that people might just stay still and freeze when they see an adult macaque on their footpath in an open area. However, the best thing you can do is to walk on as per normal and make your presence known (but not in an aggressive manner). Remember not to stare down or point any objects towards them. In this case, a monkey who is not conditioned to human feeding, will step aside. If you come across a ...

THAT’S MY SPOT! For now ;) Hawkeye the endangered Forsten’s Tortoise easily relates to the Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory, and it may just be some of us too! Hawkeye is always found at her favourite hiding spot of her enclosure. It is the perfect spot to receive sunlight for a few hours AND take shelter during heavy downpours. Because it is a trench, her spot offers her optimal cooling temperatures from the heat and exclusive private space from caregivers. But it won’t be her...

THE THREE MUSKETEERS! Isn’t it delightful to be sunbathing on a bright, sunny day? It’s even better when there’s good company! Izzy (Chinese striped-necked turtle), Homer and Bart (both yellow-spotted river turtles) are always observed lounging together in their pond as their other two pond-mates go about their businesses. The three are among the 45-over turtles residing in our rescue centre, all dependent on our dedicated staff and valued volunteers for the provisioning of food, wate...

CRIME AGAINST CUTENESS Thanks to a member of public, we were alerted to a slow loris whose canines were filed down– a practice to makes lorises “suitable” (not dangerous to humans) for the wildlife pet trade. Wildlife pet trade in Singapore is an illegal and yet this slow loris was found walking in the middle of the road beside a green space. Online videos of adorable-looking wild animals being petted or handled for the wrong reasons contribute to the demand for the wild animals as pets...

MONKEY BUSINESS AT MARSILING Macaques are smart. Once they realise there is no food available, they will stop visiting. If we want to minimise conflicts, we need to be smart and learn too. It takes every single resident to play a part in managing waste properly to allow the macaques to coexist in the nearby nature areas. #CoExist #LongTailedMacaque #WasteManagement

Sunda Pangolin Mother And Baby Release!

2020, HERE WE COME! It has been a crazy 2019 for all of us at ACRES. Apart from having the highest record of over a thousand calls in November to our 24-hr #WildlifeRescue hotline, we also embarked on new challenges. We revamped our avian housing area, repatriated more animals, erected brand new enclosures to hand-raise and rehabilitate native wildlife such as squirrels, civets and even otters (for a short period). We will continue to be the voice for animals as we enter 2020, and we leave y...

HAPPY NEW YEAR! We hope you're starting the year strong with a good, hearty breakfast! Morning toast sounds super, but not for these long-tailed macaques. It’s true that sharing is caring but if you truly care for them, don’t share! Because directly feeding these macaques conditions them to associate humans with easy food, and nothing compares to their natural selection of leaves, seeds, fruits and insects. So enjoy your savouries and treats all to yourselves, and don't forget to properly...
