“Think occasionally of the suffering of which you spare yourself the sight.”
— Albert Schweitzer
If you have any questions about our educational talks and programmes, please get in touch with Amy Corrigan, Director of Education, ACRES at: email@example.com
ACRES is dependent on public contributions to continue our animal protection programmes. Therefore we do request a donation of $200-$250 for our talks or educational programmes, depending on the specifics.
However, for other charitable organisations we can usually waive this requirement.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding making a donation for a talk or educational visit (contact details above).
We do not charge for setting up the ACRES roadshow, as long as we are able to sell our merchandise in order to cover our costs.
As much notice as possible is preferred as our calendar does tend to fill up very quickly. If you can give at least two weeks’ notice this is desirable. However, we can sometimes arrange a talk or roadshow at short notice, so please do contact us if you would like to arrange a talk or roadshow close to the date and we will try our best to meet your request.
For roadshows in public areas (e.g. anywhere where the public can walk in), we do require at least four weeks’ notice so that we can apply for the relevant permits.
We can usually tailor a talk to your needs and requirements. Please contact us to discuss this further (contact details above).Back to top
Yes, we have our special HEAL programme which has been designed for primary school aged children aged from 7-12 years old. This can also be adapted for younger children, and we have frequently organised educational activities for kindergartens, so please do contact us if you are interested in organising an educational programme for young children.
Our Outdoor Conservation Classroom at the ACRES Wildlife Rescue Centre (AWRC) has also been designed with young children in mind. Here, they can learn all about Singapore’s native wild animals through animal models, signboards and completing fun worksheets.
At the ACRES Wildlife Rescue Centre you can visit the on-site Lee Foundation Education Centre, which features a whole range of educational exhibits on a number of animal welfare issues. You can also learn all about native wild animal protection at the AWRC’s Outdoor Conservation Classroom. You can find a great deal of information on the ACRES website too.
We can generally cater to a maximum of approximately 60 people per visit. If you have any questions regarding this, please feel free to contact us (contact details above).
Unfortunately, as of 2011, you cannot see the animals at the AWRC, as they are all housed in a quarantine facility which is accessible to ACRES staff only. However, when you visit the AWRC we will show you some photographs and videos of the rescued animals and share their stories with you, and you can learn all about our wildlife rescue work.
