A HANDS ON ANIMAL ENCOUNTER TO DISCUSS BULLYING AND HOW TO STOP IT WHILE INTERACTING WITH AMAZING ANIMALS
There really is no excuse for bullying behaviour of any kind. Having experienced online bullying ourselves we decided not to give in and let these bullies win. Instead, we would like to take a stand against all bullies everywhere. For this reason, we were pleased to announce the launch of
"Our Amazing Animal World Anti-Bullying Initiative"
Bullying is just as prolific in the animal kingdom as our human world. In fact, in the natural world, bullying can be very severe indeed, resulting in death for many creatures.
We need to remember, though, that animals “bully” each other by instinct over food, territory, or mates, but humans have a moral choice as to how they treat their fellow human beings. Our new anti-bullying initiative will see us visit schools, colleges and clubs to talk to children about the types of bullying that take place in the animal kingdom and also in their own lives. At the same time, the children will have the opportunity to meet some amazing animals that have been affected by bullying in some way – some have visible scars, others missing limbs, etc.
Our aim is to give the children an unforgettable experience, with a serious message.
This can be combined with our other visits so if you would like us to discuss this please talk to us prior to the visit.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
We will arrive at the agreed venue 10 minutes before the start time as we don't have any lengthy set up times - this is to ensure that the animals are in their carriers for the least amount of time necessary.
This is perfect for a hall or large activities room where the children can spread out and not be too distracted by each other. The animals will be with the handlers on blankets, on the floor, giving each child time to build confidence and interact individually and with the group. We will also help the children to feed some of the animals where possible.
