I would recommend youtube videos about the waste of plastic life. Perhaps this can be awareness. We can deal with plastic life.

Hi, I couldn´t practice this lesson because it didn´t show me any reading, only a picture, this is the second time that I try to do it but it doesn´t show me anything. Could you help me? Thanks!!

Hi Vanessa Rodrìguez,

Thanks for letting us know. I've just checked the page and it seems fine, so it may have been a temporary error. Can you see the reading text now?

If not: which picture can you see - is it (1) the picture of rubbish on a beach, or (2) the picture of a seal with a plastic bottle? Do you find the same problem with other pages (e.g. this one)? 

If it is still not working, one solution is to try opening the page with a different web browser and see if it works. I hope it works now but please let us know again if not, and I will investigate further. Thanks :)

I would recommend watching several documentaries to learn about contemporary problems in the world.

There is no text to read, it only shows a picture.

Hello Andrea Valencia,

I'm sorry to hear you're having some problems. I've checked the page and everything is functioning correctly on both Windows and Mac, so I can only gues that there is a compatibility issue. Try using a different browser or a different device, if you can - this may solve the issue. Sometimes there are compatibility problems with mobile devices, so if you have a laptop or desktop computer you might try this.

I recommend Colombia: Magia Salvaje, a documentary that shows the nature beauty and wonders of Colombia, a biodiverse country with a huge amount of unique species. In that way, the film also shows the environmental problems that suffer the country and give advices to fight against them.

I would totally recommend you to watch the Walking With Dinosaurs series. This documentary series was produced by BBC probably in the 1990s. This documentary will take you to the Mesozoic era where dinosaurs still roaming the earth. It consists of six episodes, in which they tell you about specific times and also creatures. When you watch this series, you will find it fascinating to see these beasts perceived as real animals, not just monsters trying to eat each other. The story is really engaging, it feels like you are watching a drama since there will be a main dinosaur that you will follow along each episode. I am always in awe whenever I watch it because the CGI is just so good, even for that time.

I gorgot the calling of the movie. It's about russian history, famous russian kings. The graphic, voice acting are really fantastic. It consists of many series. The each one is about pecuiliar King. I recommend to watch.

The truth of the matter is that even wheter the different programmes some of the peole are creating to save our planet from different enemies, one of those, the plastic e threw every single day to avoid our accountability... We are doing something that harms to ourselves, as soon is possible that "rubbish" is gonna be a real problem for this and the next society. To finish, We all have to raise awareness into this real issue due to the affect we have to the place we are right now.
