SPCA stands up for whale sharks at Sentosa

On World Animal Day 5 Oct (Sat), the SPCA is featuring a campaign to stop the import and display of whale sharks at the Integrated Resort on Sentosa. A special T-shirt with this message will be on sale for $6.

Stand up for whale sharks
Whale sharks are majestic creatures, known as the gentle giants of the sea. Find out more about whale sharks and why the SPCA is against the importation and display of these creatures at the Integrated Resort on Sentosa.

Don't forget to purchase a specially designed T-shirt, priced at only $6. This new T-shirt is aimed at increasing awareness and spreading the message that whale sharks should not be kept in captivity.
More about our wildlife

NParks will also be having a booth to feature our terrestrial wildlife and how we can protect them.
More than a thousand different animals reside on our tropical island and many of them can only be found in our nature reserves. As we celebrate World Animal Day, the National Parks Board would like to share with you how you can help protect our natural heritage so that the nature reserves can continue to be a safe haven for the animals. You can help in the following ways:
- think again before you release animals into the wild
- do not feed monkeys
- leave your pets at home when you visit nature reserves

In addition, National Parks will share information on their regular, free guided walks at Bukit Timah Nature Reserve and Central Catchment Nature Reserve.

This is part of Paws by the Beach, a celebration of World Animal Day.

More details on the SPCA website and on the wildsingapore happenings blog.
