The Animal Care Badge for Scouts and Cub Scouts was launched in 2009 as a joint project between the SPCA and the Scout Association of Hong Kong.
The purpose of the badge is to teach young people that animals have feelings like us and that we should show concern for their well-being. The content is based on our Humane Education Teaching Resources Package (click here for more details), which covers animal life cycles, needs, animal protection laws, responsible pet ownership, wildlife concerns, respect for animals and the concept of animal welfare.
For further information or to reserve a place at our Animal Welfare Badge sharing sessions, please contact our Education Manager Vivian on 2232 5521. We can also provide ‘train the trainers’ sessions for Cub Scout and Scout Leaders.
