Singapore

I grew up in North Cornwall, UK right by the sea in a scenic coastal town so I was always close to nature. After moving to Singapore I needed a way to stay in touch with nature and wildlife so I joined the rescue volunteer team at ACRES. They are a wildlife charity focused on creating a caring and socially responsible society where animals are treated as sentient beings. As part of this work they rescue, rehabilitate and relocate wildlife in Singapore that are injured or have found their way into peoples homes. I have learnt so much about the native wildlife in Singapore and about the wildlife that is illegally kept here and smuggled through.I love helping animals in need and educating the public about wildlife.
