Pedal Ubin! - next session on Saturday, 11 November 2006

Category : events

How did Ubin get its name? Who was the German girl? Did you know about the monk who walked here from Thailand? Essentially, are you clueless about Pulau Ubin, Singapore's time capsule?

Well then, take a journey on bicycle with the Jungle Fowls, a bunch of friendly volunteer guides from NUS' Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research, and discover the nature and heritage of Pulau Ubin.

Registration closes on 28 Oct 2006.

Visit our website at pedalubin.rafflesmuseum.net to register!

ACRES presents Singapore's first Wildlife Rescue Centre

Category : trade

13 Oct 2006 - "Help save the life of an animal today" - Acres Wildlife Rescue Centre

------ Forwarded Message
From: "Louis Ng (Acres)"
Date: Wed, 11 Oct 2006

Dear Acres Supporters,

After two years of blood, sweat and literally tears at times, we have finally secured a piece of land for the Acres Wildlife Rescue Centre (AWRC). Acres today signed the tenancy agreement with the Singapore Land authority for a two hectare piece of land at Sungei Tengah for the AWRC.

We have put our heart and soul into this project, which will help save and improve the lives of at least 400 animals. The educational aspect of the AWRC will also move us one step closer towards ending the cruel illegal wildlife trade.

We need to raise more than a million dollars for the AWRC and urgently need your help, now. Please help save a life of an animal today by donating towards the construction of the AWRC. Every cent counts.

To donate or find out more about the AWRC and the funds required, log on to: www.acres.org.sg.

A big thank you goes out to everyone who has donated already.

Please help forward this email to your family and friends. On behalf of the animals, thank you for you support.

Best wishes,
Louis Ng (MSc)
President and Executive Director
Animal Concerns Research and Education Society (Acres)
