“Think occasionally of the suffering of which you spare yourself the sight.”
— Albert Schweitzer
Education is key to ending animal cruelty. Much of the animal abuse and exploitation in today’s world continues because of simple lack of awareness.
ACRES regularly gives talks at educational facilities all over Singapore, and is able to come to your school or university and give a talk tailored to your needs and interests.
We also offer talks at the ACRES Wildlife Rescue Centre (AWRC), and welcome groups of up to approximately 60 individuals for a talk and tour of the facility. At the AWRC there is also the opportunity to learn more about a whole host of animal welfare issues and native wildlife protection at the on-site Lee Foundation Education Centre and Outdoor Conservation Classroom.
Our educational talks raise awareness on a wide range of pressing animal protection issues and advocate compassion and respect towards animals. Most importantly, they empower the public, from the youngest members of society to the oldest, with knowledge on how they themselves can make a positive difference for animals.
We cover the topics of tackling the wildlife trade, wildlife rescue, the work of ACRES, saving sharks, improving zoo animal welfare, keeping dolphins in the wild and an overview of animal welfare. Every talk explores the themes of why animals matter and making a difference.
For primary schools we also offer the HEAL Programme, a series of special animal-themed modules designed with young audiences in mind.
For the little ones at kindergartens, we also offer specialised presentations and activities.
And it’s not just schools that we reach out too. ACRES welcomes the opportunity to come to your workplace to give a talk, or to your youth group or community centre, or you can come to the AWRC for a talk and tour. We can also come to your public event to give a talk.
