Through our educational programmes, students will learn about how they can contribute to a sustainable urban ecosystem where humans and animals live in harmony. Topics covered will provide an understanding on animal welfare, being responsible to our pets and community, and identifying the type of animals that can be kept as pets. This is our commitment to create a society that is aware, compassionate and caring in our City in Nature.
