Whether it’s seaweed and its ability to remove toxins from seawater or acorns and their importance as a food source for other animals, the search for our ‘hero’ will introduce us to other important conservation and nature facts. Simple and fun animations are used to illustrate the acts of conservation and their roles in the wider eco-system.
