Our activities here at Radcliffe Animal Centre are being developed as part of a wider community project to support animal welfare education and literacy across Nottinghamshire.
We have a number of projects underway with schools across Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire.
Activities like our Book Bunny Project, not only help children with their core skills but in turn we are able to show them why it is much better to keep rabbits in a spacious environment rather than a tiny hutch and it enables us to talk about all the needs of particular animals.
Animal welfare explored through poetry, drama and music
At Radcliffe Animal Centre we are working with schools and teachers to get them to think about using poetry, drama and music to explore issues around animal cruelty. The development of emotional skills is essential in cruelty intervention.
