What is this wildlife parade all about?

INTRODUCTION
The Singapore Wildlife Stampede aims to educate youths and the general public on the endangered animal species especially found in Singapore. This will heighten the awareness on the dangers our environment is facing and hence promote a sense of stewardship towards nature. Thus we urge schools, non-government organisations, environment clubs and YOU to join in this inaugural parade and showcase your work and creativity in this event.

Similar to Chingay Parade held during the Chinese New Year season annually, contingents from various schools and organisations will march down the streets of Singapore. Each contingent can be distinguished by their personalised floats and costumes that should reflect a specific theme related to the aims of the Singapore Wildlife Stampede. Heading the procession would be Dr Jane Goodall herself.
