NUS PEACE, which stands for People Ending Animal Cruelty and Exploitation, is an interest group affiliated with the National University of Singapore (NUS).
Established in 2006 by a few dedicated NUS students, they got together and decided to make a positive change in the world by fighting for the causes that they cared for. The idea that got us all excited was a simple one: To make the world a better place for animals.
NUS PEACE fosters the love and respect that all animals deserve through education, advocacy and action, by connecting with others in the community who care.
NUS PEACE aims to be a strong voice for animals by addressing often neglected issues concerning pets, farm animals, laboratory animals, animals in entertainment and in the wild.
