The main purpose of this event is to raise awareness on the wildlife trade while raising funds for the only wildlife rescue center in Singapore. The theme for our guided tour is the 'Wildlife trade in Singapore'. The guiding will be focused on the Wildlife Trade and Animal Welfare with guides to enthrall us with the various shady and appalling tricks of the wildlife trade.

I like the wildlife photograph it reminds me of when I was little and my parents would take my sister and I to animal parks and a museum filled with fake stuffed animals we would freak out thinking that the animals would appear to awake up at any second and eat us all. Ha! that's funny
