Have you ever chanced upon a troop of macaques in your estate or heard the iconic "uwu!" calls of the koel? Get yourself acquainted with Our Wild Neighbours and learn the dos and don'ts during an encounter. Get practical tips on how you can coexist with the animals that share our island home and what role each animal plays in keeping our city in nature green and healthy.
Jasvic's journey in wildlife conservation and education started when she embarked on an art project documenting wild animals that have died from human activities in Singapore. While working on the project, entitled Death by Man, she actively involved herself in volunteering and working with ACRES as a means to better understand the interactions between people and animals, and how we can build a better relationship with our wildlife. From wildlife rescue to monkey guarding and wildlife management, her experiences have led her to become the Campaign Manager of the Our Wild Neighbours (OWN) initiative - an islandwide, multi-stakeholder campaign that promotes human-wildlife coexistence.
