Read this and feel enraged. I know I did.
Help give these rescued monkeys a second chance at life. Let's make it the year of the monkeys!
Once, the shores of Singapore had a thriving native wildlife with a diversity of local flora and fauna. With the rapid development of Singapores economy, we have witnessed a population explosion driven by economic opportunities.Scarcity of land and urbanisation have increased the rate of deforestation and resulted in rapid habitat loss for local wildlife. Even for the surviving native wildlife, they faced the impending issue of human encroachment and human-animal conflict that are driving many species to near extinction. Unless we act NOW, extinction will be FOREVER.
