On 15 June, zoos and safari parks in England opened their doors to visitors for the first time since 23 March, when the UK announced a lockdown to fight the coronavirus outbreak. But is it silly that we should be opening up places like zoos and non-essential shops when we can’t even work out how to get all our children back to school safely?

This resource includes an article from The Week Junior, and a set of activities based on the story that encourage pupils to consider the issues involved in deciding how to ‘reopen the country’ safely, as well as the ethics of keeping animals in captivity.
