This is the home page of the Meerkats.Why did we choose the Meerkat? The Meerkat belongs to the mongoose family. It is famous for standing upright looking out for eagles and hawks that might attack their community.
A Meerkat is always careful.
Meerkats work together to keep themselves safe. When a deadly puff adder attacked a burrow the meerkats helped each other and carried all their babies to safety.
When they want to be safe, meerkats go to their burrow.
Like the meerkat you can learn to be watchful and help to keep yourself safe. Meerkats teach us not to let our guard down and work together to keep our community safe from dangers.
We do not live in the wild, but we do have to know about the world around us because sometimes other people, or things we do, can be unsafe.
The Meerkat pages will help you to find out how you can help yourself and your friends to stay safe.
