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 presentations at educational and corporate facilities all over Singapore. We also offer educational programmes at the ACRES Wildlife Rescue Centre (AWRC), and welcome groups of up to 50 individuals for a presentation and tour of the facility which includes the Lee Foundation Education Centre, Outdoor Conservation Classroom and Wildlife Sanctuary.

Our educational talks raise awareness on a wide range of pressing animal protection issues and advocate compassion and respect towards animals:

  • Animals as Sentient Beings
  • Endangered Animals
  • Wildlife Trade
  • Making a Difference for Animals
  • General ACRES Presentation
  • Our Native Wildlife
  • and more…
