We want to be a refuge for wildlife in danger in Singapore, so we strive to deliver services of the highest quality. This objective drives us day by day. These services are not only tailored to ensure the safety of wildlife but they are also designed with the comfort and safety of human life and property in mind.
We Rescue Wild Animals And Give Them Another Chance.
Our wildlife rescue services are dedicated to rescuing wild animals in distress. We rescue native wildlife in need of help, animals that fall victim to the wildlife trade, and even abandoned or displaced domestic animals. We rescue native animals who have lost their habitats to urbanization and are stranded in urban areas, or who have suffered an injury or illness. For animals illegally brought into Singapore and sold or kept as pets, we take them to an ideal sanctuary. Whether they have been abandoned or handed over to us, we make sure the animals are safe and well taken care of in their new home. But not indefinitely though, because our ultimate aim is for the animals to return to the wild, fit and ready to thrive. For exotic animals, our aim is to send them back to rescue centers in their countries of origin and hear that they have been rehabilitated and returned to the wild. We rescue all sorts of wild animals, from primates like monkeys to reptiles like snakes, and everything in between.
Our wildlife rescue services operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This is to make sure that we are always on hand to help wildlife. If you know of any wild animal in need of help, you can reach us on our rescue hotline at (+65 8810 3699).
Solve The Problem Before It Happens.
When a wild animal unknowingly encroaches on your premises ( in search of food or shelter), removing the animal may not fully solve the problem. It may address the immediate issue, but animals may continue to find their way in, and the problem will repeat itself. We can get to the root of the problem by making sure that wildlife does not accidentally venture onto your property. We utilize our experience and tools to locate every wildlife access point, such as gaps, holes, and crevices, and make sure your premises are animal-proof. This includes installing barriers, repairing any structural damage, and so on. Because our policy is to ensure animals stay safe, we ensure that animals are never harmed in the wildlife exclusion process.
Wildlife Awareness and Coexistence
Coexistence. We Make It Happen.
Wildlife habitats and wildlife itself are disappearing faster than ever. Singapore has lost 73 percent of its plants and animals over the last few centuries. To survive, wild animals are seeking refuge in urban areas and cross paths with humans. And when wildlife comes into conflict with humans, the animals always come out worse off. They often get killed because people are scared of wild animals, or because communities neither have the education nor resources to deal with conflict situations. This leads to the loss of even more wildlife. Our services ensure that wildlife is preserved, and humans and wildlife can co-exist, the way nature intended.
We do this through:
1) Analysis: We start by analyzing the cause of the conflict. We get to the source of the problem and work out how the community is affected. Then we devise a strategy to ensure both humans and wildlife can live together amicably.
2) Working Together: Human-Wildlife coexistence cannot work without the community. We begin with awareness, informing key community members of the human-wildlife conflict situation, then work together to find the best solution that works for people and wildlife. Whatever we do, we aim to develop solutions that are practical, mutually beneficial and enduring.
Monkey Guard Training
Keep Monkeys Away, The Safe Way.
Monkey guard training, or monkey herding, is getting increasingly important as time goes on. As more monkeys come into contact with humans, often tempted by people who feed them, the monkeys will begin to increasingly encroach on residential areas. This causes conflicts. This is the reason why about a third of Singapore’s monkey population has been culled. But wildlife populations should be preserved, and in this situation, monkey guard training is an effective solution. It involves training people to essentially 'shoo' monkeys away any time they encroach on human habitats. This rewires their behaviour and teaches them not to come toward humans, and it keeps them safe. Monkey guards can also educate the public on how to behave in a monkey conflict situation.
Resolving Human-Wildlife Conflict
So No One Gets Hurt At All.
Human-wildlife conflict is when animals and humans cross paths with negative results. Usually, but not always, the interests of the animals (which is to find food or a safe habitat to raise their young) conflict with the economic, social and personal interests of humans. This then leads to retaliation against the animal. The underlying causes of human-wildlife conflict are broad in scope and can affect a range of different stakeholders, such as government agencies, town councils, religious groups and communities, who may have different interests at play. We help to manage human-wildlife conflict by providing well-informed, evidence-led and collaborative solutions that take into account the social, political, and cultural context.
We aim to do this through awareness, analysis and working together with all parts of society to ensure that human-wildlife conflict cases are fairly and justly resolved.
