About Campaignends 31 Dec 2023, 11:59 PM
We have rescued 36,548 wild animals in distress to date and have seen an increase in calls to our wildlife rescue hotline since the pandemic. With Singapore's Green Plan 2030, aimed at transforming Singapore into a City in Nature, we foresee an increasing need for education on coexisting with wildlife in Singapore.
In a month, ACRES:
Handles 1,300 calls to our 24-hour wildlife rescue hotline;
Rescues over 300 wild animals;
Manages over 100 animal human-wildlife interactions; and
Empowers over 1,000 individuals through education.
We have reached out to over 32,000 individuals in 2022 alone through our wildlife rescue work, humane education programmes and advocating for humane treatment of animals.
In 2023, we aspire to do more through:
- repatriation, so the trafficked wildlife get a second chance in the wild
- operate the Rapid Response Rescue Team, to complement our single rescue vehicle
- intensify outreach at schools and corporates; and
- engage the community through improved volunteer programmes
With a monthly operating cost of $100,000, our current reserves do not allow us to plan for the future with certainty. Your donations will go a long way in realising our dreams for the animals in Singapore!
About the Charity
ACRES is a pioneering Singapore-based charity with a sole aim to advocate for an end to animal cruelty in our own backyard. With Singapore's first facility dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of animals rescued from the illegal wildlife trade and injured native wild animals we speak up for more animals via our five focus areas: Tackling Wildlife Crime in Singapore, Humane Education, Promoting Cruelty-Free Living, Community Outreach, and Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation.
Since our founding in May 2001, ACRES has helped effect several environmental shifts that pushed Singapore forward in the animal protection movement. Alongside collaborative efforts with governmental agencies, we seek to nurture a responsible society from grassroots level to the individual homes where animals are treated with compassion and respect.
