Millions of wild animals are captured annually for use in the pet trade. Unable to survive new environments, some die during capture. To spread awareness about exotic animals, D-PREP International School invited professionals with exotic animals into the school.
Among the exotic animals were turtles, snakes, scorpions, spiders, and a parrot. The students learned about where the animals came from, what they ate, and how to care for them.
To make the experience more exciting, the professionals taught the students how to handle the animals safely and allowed them to hold the exotic animals. We’re proud to say many of our students showed courageousness and even volunteered to carry them!
