Under the sponsorship of the World Wide Fund for Nature in the UK, animators and musicians- some student, some professional - combine talents to prompt laughter, anger, indignation and action for an ecologically sound future.

Reviews
"An example of how powerful visual communication can be...This production is unique and has incredible potential for classroom applications... (In libraries) it might soon become a resource that is always checked out. Not only is it entertaining, it is thought-provoking, and the images are radical enough that even the MTV generation will likely relate to them."
