‘Finconceivable’ by talented film maker Lily Williams.
This video is about what would happen if sharks became extinct.
When we were working towards the Green Flag for Biodiversity we learned what would happen if snow leopards became extinct. What would happen if the snow leopard was removed from a food chain. The results would be devastating for an ecosystem. You can read about that HERE
Happily this next video (from Sustainable Human) is a good news story. In 1995, fourteen wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone National Park in the USA. The wolves had been extinct there since 1926. Watch what happened next. We think it’s amazing!
There are some great games online.
This one teaches about Food Chains.

Also from the BBC is this one:
This one is much more challenging (for Senior Classes really)
