By conserving wildlife, we’re ensuring that future generations can enjoy our natural world and the incredible species that live within it. To help protect wildlife, it’s important to understand how species interact within their ecosystems and how they’re affected by environmental and human influences. Wildlife on planet Earth is under siege from all sides, facing down habitat loss and the impact of climate change. Some of the biggest threats to wildlife include illegal wildlife trade, habitat destruction, invasive species, and pollution.
Oaklands House Care Centre residents are animal lovers, so this subject for our activity was very welcomed. Many activities took place throughout the home with an animal trivia quiz, multiple choice answer quiz, animal-based whiteboard games, iPad games, word searches, and crosswords. Whilst our lovely resident, Eric was comforted by one of our pet therapy cats. All involved had an enjoyable afternoon.
