Protecting the Planet is a 1 hour session based around the Wild Tribe Heroes books by Ellie Jackson.

Choose between a reading from Marli’s Tangled Tale or Duffy’s Lucky Escape – both of these books tackle issues of litter and wildlife entanglement.

Free versions of these books are available here.


Students will participate in group activities based around protecting and respecting the natural world, including a litter picking game, spotting animal footprints, understanding animal homes and responsibly watching wildlife
