Wildlife Reserves Singapore launches its 'Adopt an Animal' programme to encourage people to share their love for our zoo animals.
Fancy adopting an animal from the Singapore Zoo? You can do so now, even if you can’t bring it home.
Instead, you can show your love for these animals by supporting their well-being, thanks to Wildlife Reserves Singapore’s (WRS) Adopt an Animal programme. Launched on Aug 13, the programme encourages members of the public to support an animal of their choice through three tiers of adoption contributions, ranging from $200 to $1,500.
These are the 10 featured species available for adoption: 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, and Ronnie the rex rabbit.
Donors may enjoy special privileges, including adoption e-certificates and invitations to WRS events and previews.
Funds from the programme will be channelled to an “overall resource pool” that contributes to the care of these adopted animals, such as providing nutritious meals and supporting the purchase of medical equipment to ensure their overall well-being.
These funds will also support research and education programmes across WRS’ parks and conservation projects to protect threatened species in Singapore and the region.
