A LOT CAN HAPPEN IN TWO DAYS It’s just the tip of the iceberg- if you think about the other 363 days in a year. We’re talking about another exotic illegal pet found. Two days ago, we found a #marmoset wandering about and earlier this month, a ‪#‎hedgehog‬. Alas, we were too late this time. After dawn this morning, a star tortoise was found in a pond at @Bishan Park. Concerned, a member of public contacted our wildlife rescue team but Petal was already dead on arrival. We don’t wan...

[URGENT APPEAL FOR INFORMATION] Another wandering illegally-kept primate has been found. Last night, our rescue team was alerted to a brief sighting of a marmoset (monkey) at block 271D Punggol Walk. We scouted the site and interviewed residents. Working against time was critical if we had to ensure the marmoset survives his new environment. Thankfully Mr. Ndi, a resident who spotted and contained the animal, alerted us. The marmoset will be handed to the zoo. We are appealing for any infor...

“The Whole World Is Singing… But We’ve Stopped Listening.”
14th Dec 2018, by Animal Concerns Research & Education Society (ACRES)

[ACRES CHARITY SCREENING] “The Cornell Bioacoustical Laboratory has the largest repository of animal sounds on the planet. In the brief lifetime of this collection, 70 years or so, many of the species that were recorded are now extinct. The repository is a living example of the massive rate of extinction that's happening.“ Louie Psihoyos Co-Founder, Oceanic Preservation Society The 21st Century is perhaps the most important environmental century in the human experience; this is our final c...

11th Dec 2018, by Animal Concerns Research & Education Society (ACRES)

A poor adult pigeon had gotten her foot stuck in a gap of the lamp post at Blk 106 Towner Road.

Dikko Swims Again!
7th Dec 2018, by Animal Concerns Research & Education Society (ACRES)

When Dikko the monitor lizard came in, a huge laceration was noticed on his right side near the base of his tail. Unsure of what caused the skin tear, we went ahead with treatment. He also had severe stomatitis (inflammation of the mouth) which may have been caused from being immunocompromised- a common condition amongst reptiles who are stressed and injured. It was weeks of intensive treatment which included medications, damaged tissue removal, cleaning his wound and oral cavity (not easy wit...

These are the pictures you hardly see on Instagram, YouTube and online classified advertisements. One that speaks of truth. With their doleful eyes and tiny mouths crunching on apple slices, videos and photos of hedgehogs, slow lorises and sugar gliders take over the internet. But what happens when you do get one – are you ready for the illegal pet trade? Will you be responsible for their poaching; their stress of being removed from their natural habitat and mishandled; the pain of being drug...
