JOHOR BAHRU, MALAYSIA: Noah’s Ark Natural Animal Shelter (NANAS) sent out an urgent appeal for donations on 21 March. 

Raymund Wee, its founder said that while they will “not turn away any abandoned or injured animal rescued by the public during this crisis,” he needs funds and a steady supply of food to feed the animals.

Tours to the wildlife refuge sanctuary in Pekan Nanas, Johor have been cancelled since 11 January 2020. These visits are crucial as they collect entry fee to sustain their operations. This has “pretty much stopped”. In his letter of appeal, he adds: “If many people contribute even in small amounts, we are sure it will add up and help us ride out this difficult time.”
