A Firework Code to Help Animals and Birds

During firework celebrations, only buy fireworks that don't pose a threat to wildlife. I.e. nothing that bangs or screams and no aerial fireworks like rockets or starbursts. If you have lots of trees in your garden then it's not a good idea to have any kind of aerial type fireworks. Birds are quietly roosting in trees all around you at night. Just because you can't hear or see them doesn't mean they don't exist after sunset!

Many birds are killed through this kind of negligence each year.
Never allow your pet outside during firework celebrations. If you have animals in hutches outside and can't move them indoors, then cover the hutches with heavy blankets. This will help reduce the noise and the animal should also remain undisturbed by flashing lights.
Keep cats and dogs indoors, close windows and blinds and create an audible diversion for them, like turning on some music - this should be reasonably loud but soothing sounds to try and divert the animal's attention from the outside). If available in your country, get your cat or dog microchipped. Many cats and dogs run away from home in a panic when there are fireworks around and tend to get lost.

Get your pet microchipped. With a microchip implant it's far easier to reunite an animal with its owner.

Keep an eye out for animals and birds in shock that may have fallen from trees. In most cases human intervention will add to the animals distress and we recommend you keep a watchful distance from the animal / bird and make sure no one else goes near it. If the animal continues to behave in a shocked state for more than a three or four hours or is clearly injured then you should alert your local animal welfare organization as soon as possible. They will send someone to investigate further.

If you feel concerened about the effects of fireworks on wildlife, pets and even young children and the elderly then please vote and Take part in our "Ban The Bang!" Campaign
