World Animal Protection’s activity book Wild Animals Aren’t Pets! explains why wild animals belong in the wild—and should never be purchased at a pet store.
Children will learn about wild animals and the wildlife trade through:
Beautifully illustrated coloring pages
Fun games including a crossword puzzle, maze, and word search
Hands-on ideas for how kids can help wild animals in their community
Inspired and want to do more?
If you’re an educator or work with kids, we’d love for you to use this resource! Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to learn about getting printed copies or incorporating it into your work.
We’re urging PetSmart to exit the wildlife trade, starting with ending the sale of reptiles and amphibians. Amp up the pressure on PetSmart by tweeting a photo of a completed coloring page and tagging @PetSmart. You can also mail the page to PetSmart’s headquarters with the message, “Animals aren’t products – take the first step to exiting the wildlife trade by ending the sale of reptiles and amphibians!”
