Our Campaign Storyends 20 Oct 2018, 11:59 PM
We are a group of students from Hwa Chong Institution organising Project Wildcare, an upcoming Service Learning project in collaboration with the Citi-YMCA Youth For Causes (YFC) programme, in benefit of ACRES (Animal Concerns Research and Education Society). Project WildCare aims to promote our native wildlife's welfare through the raising of awareness and funds for ACRES to contribute to their focus areas: empowering people with knowledge to end animal exploitation, promoting cruelty-free living, community outreach and rescuing of wildlife. It consists of street sales during June 2017, door to door promotion and a 'Carnimal' carnival planned to take place in August 2017.
We decided to promote public awareness on living in harmony with our native wildlife this year, so as to reduce the need for wildlife rescue provided by ACRES and to keep our wildlife protected in Singapore. Singapore is home to a rich biodiversity, which can be found in their natural habitats, be it dry land, tropical rainforests, mangroves or coral ecosystems. We have recorded a total of 384 species of birds, 65 species of mammals and 109 species of reptiles in Singapore. Many Singaporeans currently do not appreciate or are unaware about the need to conserve our local biodiversity. Furthermore, the rapid modernisation of society has caused a loss of habitat for our native wildlife, thus raising awareness is necessary.
We would like to invite you to be a sponsor for our project. Possible sponsorsh
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.
