Animals and the law

Animals and the law

In this activity, young people consider scenarios involving humans and animals, and decide whether they are lawful.

Young people will: 

  1. begin to realise that animals are protected by law
  2. explore which human actions towards animals are against the law
  3. explore the concept that just because an action is lawful, it is not necessarily in the best interests of the animal.

Number of participants: You can run this activity with just one person or in a small group.

How long it will take: Each activity will take 15 to 30 minutes.

Included in this guide:

  • Activity sheets
  • Facilitators' notes
