This clip could be used as part of a study on habitats. Ask the children to watch the clip and in pairs make notes on the key features of the habitat and how the animals featured in the clip are adapted to survive there. Following the clip, tell the children that a threat is being made to the habitat and ask the children to design a poster or campaign to advertise and request support to prevent the threat causing serious consequences.
