Guardians of the Greenwood

Guardians of the Greenwood is a conservation and environmentally based adventure which, although set in a fantasy world, highlights many of the environmental threats that are encountered today: air and water pollution, destruction of habitats, soil erosion, blots on the landscape, the lowering of water tables, deforestation and climate change. The blend of pathos and humour plus the appealing nature of the program will fire children's imaginations.
