The Happy Orca's Animal Academy is an educational resource using PowerPoint slides and fun workbooks to explore problems animals are facing today. We look at animals being used in zoos and for cosmetic testing, being hunted for ivory and fur products and we also look at environmental issues such as climate change and plastic pollution. Whilst these can be emotive subjects, we gently explore them using a range of activities including art tasks, soap making and maths challenges to name a few.
