PBS Series Examines
Our Fragile Planet

When the Nobel Peace Prize was bestowed upon former Vice President Al Gore, it helped bring the issue of climate change to the attention of the global public. That's just one issue that we residents of Planet Earth must grapple with; others include increased hunger, drinking water shortages, flooding and endangered species.

The Public Broadcasting System series, "Journey to Planet Earth," hosted by actor Matt Damon, addresses these and other issues, helping teachers explain to students the science behind the headlines. There are 10 programs in the series: State of the Oceans' Animals; State of the Planet's Wildlife; State of the Planet; Future Conditional; On the Brink; Seas of Grass; Hot Zones; Rivers of Destiny; The Urban Explosion; and Land of Plenty, Land of Want.

Caring for Animals

Together with the Humane Society of the United States, the National Association of Humane and Environmental Education (NAHEE) offers educational resources to help educate students of all ages about the importance of caring for and respecting all animals. NAHEE programs also challenge young people to take action to protect natural habitats, and provide teaching materials and professional development to educators.
