The RSPCA is educating children on how to spot dangers to wildlife, how to create the perfect habitat for an animal and where to find animals – via new online games. 
The charity hopes the games, which are part of the wider educational work it does with young people, provide a fun and interactive way for primary school children to understand how the way they act can affect the wildlife around them.
Head of education at the RSPCA David Allen said: “The ‘P’ in RSPCA stands for prevention and that is what we are aiming to do by teaching children how to look after animals at a young age.
“We would love to go further and to see animal welfare feature on the school curriculum; we have resources available on our website to help teachers lesson plan around this.”
All of these resources are included in the ‘Animals and Us’ section of the website, which provides a range of interactive games, quizzes and videos to help learning for children in key stage 1 and 2.
