Educational animation exploring viewpoints about bushmeat
A simple animation exploring this important conservation issue. The factors around the trade in bushmeat are neatly summed up in this piece - also see the pdf for some fun lesson ideas. You can use these resources with pupils to explore different viewpoints and to role play the cartoon characters.
