Pond frogs

On average we receive 14 calls a day about animals affected by litter and these calls spike in the summer months. And, as pet owners go directly to vets, and many injured wild animals are never found, it's estimated that the actual figure of animals injured by litter is much higher than we currently know. It's important that we understand the environment that wild animals live in and how we can help protect it.

Most living things live in habitats that are suited to them and these habitats provide basic needs for different animals and plants . Do your class know who lives where and how animals and habitats depend on each other? These fun activities, both role play (with super cool frog masks) and script writing, look at how human activity in the environment can pose dangers to living things.
