Don’t Hug the Quokka!
The quokka hops. He smiles, too. That quokka may be cute, but does it want a hug? The quokka says “No!” The quokka provides a lighthearted and friendly introduction to the concept of consent, explaining that even the most adorable creatures might not want a hug—unless they say so!
