We have always tried to do something to celebrate the environmental days, but there are certain days which ring louder for us. This year we focused on Rhino Day, Marine day, African penguin day, Animal day and we will soon be having a talk on SA Birding day. These days are important to celebrate as we teach the children that animal have feeling and rights, just like people. We try to coax the children to handle their pets with care and love and dignity. For Penguin day, we learnt about how careless oil spills can affect the penguin as they are no longer able to keep their pelt water proof. We looked at all the little thinking we can do to try and keep these animals safe and happy.
