Wildlife Management

Managing wildlife populations in a highly urbanised country such as Singapore presents a challenge due to the overlap in high human population centres and wildlife distribution. We adopt a scientific and education-based approach to mitigate human-wildlife incidents with the support of the community.

The Wildlife Act serves to strengthen the protection, preservation and management of wildlife in Singapore. It prohibits the feeding, release, killing, trapping, taking, and keeping of wildlife without a written approval from the Director-General/Wildlife Management, and regulates the import, sale, and export of wildlife.

The Centre for Wildlife Rehabilitation provides veterinary care and rehabilitation for wild animals in Singapore and builds NParks’ expertise in the rescue, treatment and release of wildlife. It also enhances NParks’ biosurveillance and wildlife population research capabilities, and is key to our community and science-based approach to wildlife management and conservation.
