Student web conference

Humans have a huge influence on the world around us. Uncover some of the connections between humans and the animal world as we explore the plight of the Gorilla deep in Sub-Saharan Africa. You’ll discover the relationship between the choices we make and the impact on the environment, but also find out ways you can make a change for good.

Register your students and join us live using Adobe Connect on a computer (hooked up to a screen or interactive whiteboard) or electronic device. You will watch a live video stream and will need sound to hear the conversation. Students will be able to type questions via a live chat box - no camera or microphone is required.
