Movies Can Make a Difference

Sometimes, the best way to learn about--and develop empathy for--endangered species is by watching a good movie. 

This is especially true for kids, who are in the midst of developing their perspectives and interests about the world at large. So, I created a list of eight movies that have been tested and approved by my own offspring, ages 6 to 12, and are guaranteed to impart some sort of lasting impression regarding the species that star in them. You can see the list here.

One movie that I forgot to add is called Spirit Bear. It actually inspired my kids to write letters to the Canadian government in effort to help protect the rare white phase black bear from extinction in British Columbia.
