They must remember that all animals, including mini-beasts, are living and have feelings.


Sam and Kareem are much bigger than the animals they want to look at. They must always handle animals gently and be kind to them.

Just like you, animals feel pain. They need food and water to survive. They have special places where they live.

Sam and Kareem must put the animals they collect back exactly where they found them. They must let them go quickly and not keep them in jars or boxes!

They know they must not chase baby birds and other small animals, but leave them alone.

Sam and Kareem always remember to wash their hands after working with animals.


Can you help Sam and Kareem stay safe and treat animals kindly?
