Endangered animals

This is currently one of Harry's favourite story books, in which Harry visits a safari park and makes cards to sell to raise money for endangered animals.

It has got us thinking about endangered animals. I found a couple of articles in the Kids National Geographic magazine about wetlands under threat and shark conservation zones, and this book at the library which we have been reading. 

We have talked about humans killing the animals because they are scared of them or because they think that parts of the animal can be used in medicine. We have been playing role play games pretending to be rangers and hunters.

We have also talked about habitat and how destruction of habitat can result in animals becoming endangered.

We have been painting our own animals too. These are Harry's sea turtles, tiger, rhino and jaguar - hopefully you can tell which one is which :-)
