FEEDING WILD ANIMALS ACTUALLY DO MORE HARM THAN GOOD TO THEM

When will people ever learn that feeding wild animals just for their own personal gain, or thinking that the animals need to be fed, are actually doing these animals more harm than good? A nature photographer was fined yesterday for flouting the law by feeding the birds at Botanic Gardens, just to get good pictures of these birds.

The fear of humans will be eliminated if we keep doing that. The macaques are now attacking residents at Segar. The birds will lose their fear of humans, and tragic consequences may occur such as not moving away from approaching vehicles. The risk of diseases spreading should also be taken into account.

NATURE PHOTOGRAPHERS USING UNETHICAL BAITING PRACTICE THAT HARM ANIMALS

There have recently been several news stories about nature photographers behaving badly, including the incident at Tuas where a photographer tied down a baby bird to photograph the parent feeding it, as well as the time when several photographers were caught on camera using poisoned fish to bait an endangered eagle. Although these may sound like isolated incidents, this bad behaviour, especially the illegal use of bait, has been going on for a long time and several nature photographers are part of an organised group that plans and executes baiting operations in our parks and nature reserves.

STOP FEEDING THE PIGEONS! THEY ARE CAUSING US TO GET ILL!
