ACRES Wildlife Bootcamp for Kids

As Singapore develops into a biophilic city in a garden, encounters with wildlife can also be made harmonious and peaceful if we practised wildlife etiquette. Our Wildlife Boot Camp is initiated just for kids to learn about the wild animals around us and how else we can better protect animals.
