Going, going, gone… In Endangered Animals, the pupils will explore how animals can become endangered or extinct due to threats such as hunting and habitat destruction. The problems that animals face are introduced alongside examples of positive things that people can do to help. Many of the animal skins and other objects from the natural world used in this session are on loan from H.M. Revenue and Customs - they are from real animals hunted in the wild.
