To celebrate the International Year of Biodiversity
2010, the NFB, with the Canadian Commission for UNESCO
, presents this playlist of NFB films to get people thinking about the connections between us and other species.
Whether looking at the effects of factory farms, the reintroduction of displaced species or the damage caused by our own waste, these films demonstrate humanity's role in both damaging and preserving vital living networks and ecosystems. They highlight the complexity of the relationships between people and their environment.
