Our Regional Activities
Located in a region of high biodiversity and serious conservation threats, Wildlife Reserves Singapore focuses its conservation efforts within Southeast Asia. Over the past ten years, WRS has supported over 50 projects across the region, through project funding or capacity-building. In future a stronger focus will be put on projects which allow a direct link of in-situ and ex-situ conservation efforts.
In our regional efforts WRS is proud to partner with major conservation organizations such as the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA) and its regional associations, major conservation organizations such as the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), Specialist Groups of the Species Survival Commission (SSC), the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), TRAFFIC, Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, The Turtle Conservancy (TC), Turtle Survival Alliance (TSA), Bird Life International, International Rhino Foundation (IRF), Zoological Society of London (ZSL), Zoological Society for the Conservation of Species and Populations (ZGAP) and many more.
WRS also plays an active role in the steering committee of the Asian Species Action Partnership (ASAP). The ASAP is a IUCN SSC-convened group, recently established by conservation partners to support Southeast Asian governments to minimize extinctions of critically endangered freshwater and terrestrial vertebrates in the region.
