The island state of Singapore, despite having lost much of its natural forest cover to urban development, still harbors a valuable diversity of animal and plant species.
These are our unique natural heritage and deserve our best efforts to protect.
The Wildlife Reserves Singapore Conservation Fund (WRSCF) was set up with the primary purpose of conserving Singapore’s endangered native wildlife, and also supports capacity building, education and awareness programs on key species and conservation issues in the Southeast Asian region.
The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) is a registered animal welfare charity with IPC status.
The SPCA is not a government agency. They rely on donations from our supporters to continue our important role as animal protector. Over $2,000,000 annually is required to carry out our animal welfare work.
SPCA receives approximately 600 pets and stray animals every month. This figure includes approximately 90 lost dogs which are all checked for microchips and advertised in the press in an effort to locate their owners.
The Canadian Cancer Society is the largest national charitable funder of cancer research in Canada.
It is funding life-saving research into all types of cancer.
Today, over 60% of Canadians diagnosed with cancer will survive compared to about 25% in the early 1940s when we started funding research. Despite the drop in deaths, cancer is still the leading cause of death in Canada.
The Canadian Cancer Society fights cancer by:
- Doing everything we can to prevent cancer
- Funding research to outsmart cancer
- Empowering, informing and supporting Canadians living with cancer
- Advocating for public policies to improve the health of Canadians
- Rallying Canadians to get involved in the fight against cancer
Working together with health care and research professionals, patients, and the community, The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation raises over $84 million annually to support breakthrough research, patient care and education programs at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre (The Princess Margaret). The Princess Margaret is a recognized international leader in the fight against cancer and none of this would be possible without the generous support, commitment and dedication of our donors and our community.
Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, along with Toronto General Hospital, Toronto Western Hospital and Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, comprise University Health Network (UHN). UHN is among the ranks of the world's leading providers of exemplary patient care and innovative research and teaching.
