Wildlife Reserves Singapore (WRS) launches its Adopt an Animal programme, allowing members of the public to share their love and support for wildlife by adopting a selected animal of their choice.

Featuring three tiers of adoption contributions ranging from $200 to $1,500, the programme welcomes adoptions by the public for 10 featured species:

Ah Meng the Sumatran Orangutan

Ben & Bella the African Penguins

Bosco the Red Ruffed Lemur

Bunny the Two-toed Sloth

Coco the Aldabra Giant Tortoise

Matahari the Malayan Sun Bear

Pedro the California Sea Lion

Psota the Pygmy Hippopotamus

Rambo the Eastern Grey Kangaroo

Ronnie the Rex Rabbit

Each contribution comes with special privileges including adoption e-certificates and invitations to WRS events and previews.

Funds collected from the symbolic adoptions will go towards an overall resource pool that contributes to the care of animals including providing nutritious meals to ensure their overall well-being, supporting the purchase of medical equipment to give them uncompromised healthcare, and the general upkeep of animal habitats.

Beyond caring for adopted animals, contributions will also support research and education programmes across WRS’ parks as well as conservation projects to protect threatened species in Singapore and the region.

The programme adds to WRS’ wide range of support and volunteer schemes such as micro and corporate sponsorships, as well as giving personal time as a Conservation Ambassador, docent or Wildlife Buddy.
