The film's message is that climate change is altering North American habitats. Melting icecaps, increasing temperatures and rising sea levels are causing environmental stresses for the Pacific Walrus, the Diamondback Terrabond Turtle and Brook Trout. Frequent and severe droughts are altering the composition of forests and drying wetlands. These occurrences are devastating bird populations.
Using excellent wildlife videography, this clip challenges students to "go outside" and examiine how nature is changing. Students are also encouraged to adopt lifestyle choices and actions to help make a difference.
This video may be used as an introduction to any unit on climate change. The video has application in science (fossil fuels, greenhouse gases, and ecosystem protection), geography (weather patterns, rising seal levels), and social studies (responsible citizenship, international cooperation).
