The Wildlife Reserves of Singapore (WRS) is one of six selected beneficiaries of the Dollar Matching programme launched by Microsoft Singapore this year to increase its fundraising support to local nonprofit groups.

 

Microsoft will match the donated sum made by its Singapore-based employees (up to SGD500 per employee) to support WRS and their conservation efforts. Microsoft’s donations to WRS are coordinated by Ammado, one of Microsoft’s global nonprofit partners.

If you love animals and are keen to engage people, you may wish to join Wildlife Reserves Singapore as a volunteer docent!

Started in 1997, the WRS docent programme is for adult volunteers who are based at Discovery Stations located at Jurong Bird Park, the Night Safari and Singapore Zoo. Interpretives, games, props and animal artifacts are just some of the tools used to educate and engage visitors to help spread the organization’s conservation message. Learn more about the stations and duty timings.
