About ACRES (Animal Concerns Research and Education Society)
ACRES is a pioneering Singapore-based charity and Institution of Public Character, founded by Singaporeans in 2001 with the aim of advocating for an end to animal cruelty in Asia. ACRES is registered as an International NGO in Lao PDR and Australia.
It has six focus areas: Tackling Wildlife Crime, Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation, Addressing Zoo Animal Welfare, Humane Education, Community Outreach, and Promoting Cruelty-Free Living.
ACRES has distinguished itself over the years by its strong campaigns, active education programmes, a Wildlife Rescue Center, and 24 hour rescue operations. ACRES was recently honoured at the Singapore Advocacy Awards 2014. Its Chief Executive, Mr Louis Ng, was conferred the award for 'Advocate of the year'.
ACRES' work is multifaceted, done with the ultimate aim of ending animal cruelty in all its forms. The spectrum of avaliable jobs ranges from recommending changes in government policies, practices and legislation to ground-up investigations into animal cruelty cases and wildlife crime. Big on education, it actively drives education programmes on animal protection and welfare, and consistently conducts outreach activities and campaigns. ACRES is also a check and balance for animal welfare in zoos and marine parks in Asia. In a year, the Wildlife Rescue team saves an average of 1,000 injured, displaced, abandoned, and abused animals. And its Wildlife Rescue Centre houses some 150 animals - victims of the illegal wildlife trade awaiting repatriation, and injured animals undergoing treatment and rehabilitation.
