Are you strongly against animal cruelty and wildlife crime?
We are, and that is why we started the ACRES Animal Crime Investigation unit.
Launched in March 2015, The unit investigates animal cruelty and wildlife crime cases in Singapore by collating evidence via undercover operations and aims to work with the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) and other relevant authorities to prosecute offenders in court.
Wildlife crime and animal cruelty is happening right here in Singapore. Despite past investigation attempts, offenders have not been effectively prosecuted in many cases. ACRES aims to ensure offenders get the punishment they deserve, and in the process, tackle the source of animal cruelty and wildlife crime.
If you have followed our updates recently, you might have come across news about the latest press conference ACRES held on 29 April 2015 to present our first undercover investigation findings of the year after 2 months of undercover investigations conducted by our animal crime unit. The findings have shown a reduction in the illegal trade of tiger parts since our last round of investigation - from 44% of jewellery and antique shops which sold tiger teeth and claws, in 2010, to a meer 2.6% in 2015. This has shown the effectiveness of imposing strict legislation and animal laws, as well as the importance of meting out penalties to offenders. These findings are a strong impetus for us to carry out further action to reduce all forms of animal crime locally.
