As our education team operates on lean manpower, we are mostly offering virtual versions of our programmes with exciting components such as a live virtual tour of our treatment facility OR sanctuary. We seek your understanding that we are trying our best to deliver physical programmes where possible. 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
- Illegal Wildlife Trade
- Coexistence with Singapore’s wildlife & Wildlife Etiquette sessions
- Cruelty-free lifestyle and Taking Action for Animals
- Tailored topics: We can also deliver on topics specific to a group of animals, for example: Dolphins in Captivity, Snakes of Singapore, etc.

ACRES can deliver virtual programmes through our own zoom meeting room; We strongly believe that delivery, engagement and keeping the content current and relevant – play a vital role in empowering the audience to take action for animals. For this reason and content copyrights, recording of the programmes is not permitted. We regret to inform you that we do not share powerpoint slides/videos of our programmes for a duplicate session without written agreement on terms.
ACRES is keen to engage your team members and empower them on local animal protection issues through a virtual or a physical lunch-break sharing session or a visit to ACRES. Please note that we request for a donation to support the work for animals. Kindly email our Senior Supporters Engagement Executive Ram at firstname.lastname@example.org with your request.
