K2 & K3 classroom resources

Illegal and unsustainable wildlife trade are major threats to many of the world's species and it’s one of the most important and urgent parts of our work.

Our two new classroom resources - Illegal Wildlife Trade Detectives (ages 8 - 11) and Illegal Wildlife Trade: Investigations (ages 11 - 14) - help your pupils find out more about the threats to wildlife from illegal trade and to explore some of the solutions to help fight it. The activities can be delivered through different subject areas or as part of a themed week on sustainability.

Primary School Classroom Resources

The aim of this resource is to encourage 8 to 11 year olds to find out more about the threats to wildlife from illegal trade and to explore some of the solutions to help fight it – from the use of sniffer dogs to the development of new technologies. Simple activities are provided to help pupils develop a better understanding of the issues, to formulate their own ideas and opinions, and to reflect on how their own actions can help to protect the natural world. The activities can be delivered through different subject areas or as part of a themed week on sustainability.
