This video could be used in an ethics, social studies, or civics class to discuss if nature, wild spaces, oceans, and other species have the right to exist or if global protections should be enacted to protect interconnected ecosystems.
This would be a great introduction to lessons about ecosystems, nutrient cycling, and biodiversity.
This video explores the importance of ecosystem management and restoration, an approach that supports sustainable livelihoods, forests, ecosystems, human lives, biodiversity, conservation, and human health. This is recommended for teaching.
