Children enjoy moving like animals and singing animal songs so, while Miss Possum was dancing away to So Many Animals by Hi 5, I tried to think of more songs related to wildlife. You know what? I could only come up with five, pretty sad for a Wildlife Education Officer!
I asked my wonderful Facebook followers for help and thankfully they added more to the list. Here are some of the wildlife songs we all thought of, some that bring back fond memories and others that are more current. Grab your child and watch or dance to these great tunes. Can you think of more?
1. So Many Animals – Hi 5
2. Doing it by Justine Clark
3. Please Don’t Call Me a Koala Bear – Don Spencer
4. Riding in the Pouch – Dot the Kangaroo
You really couldn’t and wouldn’t want to ride in the pouch of a kangaroo. Mucous galore!
5. The Monkey Dance – The Wiggles
6. Toad, Frog, Pollywog - Waffletron
7. Dinosaur Roar – Justine Clarke
8. Baby Beluga – The Wiggles
9. The penguin Strut – Don Spencer
I would love more wildlife songs from around the world.
*Please feel free to add your favourites in the comments below. If it meets selected criteria (and if there’s a decent you tube clip), I will add it to the list.
Quite a few people have also mentioned the songs at Secret Gully. They have a nice Bilby song here.
