ACRES needs support for Wildlife Rescue Centre

Dear Acres supporters,

We are in urgent need of funds to establish Singapore's first wildlife rescue centre.

The two hectare Acres Wildlife Rescue Centre (AWRC) will provide a much needed safe haven for animals rescued from the illegal wildlife trade. The AWRC will also serve as an educational facility to create awareness on the detrimental effects of the illegal wildlife trade.

The educational aspect of the AWRC will ultimately move us one step closer towards ending the illegal wildlife trade.

We will be taking over the land next month and we need to raise more than a million Singapore dollars to make the AWRC a reality. We have raised about $7,000 so far and urgently need your help.

The AWRC will provide a home for more than 400 animals and you can help make a difference for each of these animal's lives. Please consider making a donation in support of this very important project.

Please forward this email to your family and friends and help spread the word on this critical project which will save hundreds of lives.

More on the ACRES website including how to donate and more about the AWRC

On behalf of the animals, thank you for your kind support.

Best wishes, Louis Ng (MSc)
