Held at the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel, guests can look forward to an enriching evening hosted by Nadya Hutagalung, who is an animal rights activist herself, and Moe Alkaff, as well as entertainment by The Thomson Big Band and jazz vocalist, Yvette Atienza.

Preceding the gala on the same day is a conference where Goodall will deliver a keynote speech, discussing the relationship between human and wildlife.
