1. Elephants, lions, polar bears, whales, a white shark, jungle birds, foxes, linx, wolves, walrus, anthelopes, dolphins, gorillas.
2. The main causes are the human activities that produce CO2 which is directly sent to the atmosphere. They are critised in the film and they are expressed by showing how animals are dying because of this climate change.
3. - Ice melting in the poles is causing that some polar bears can't hunt or take the food they need to survive because they can't swim.
- Droughts in Africa are making elephants to migrate enduring long dangerous and hard triops through the savannah where there is lack of water. This is causing many elephants to die.
- High temperatures are killing plancton which is the food of the whales. So, whales are dying because they don't have enough food to survive.
4. - If humans stopped producing so much CO2, the greenhouse effect would stop and the atmosphere would recover from its damage.
- Recycling may help to reused some materials that are taken directly from nature and may contribute to restore natural environments.
- Humans must stop building in protected, natural landcapes.
5. I really enjoyed the film, I think it is very useful to make humans realise the damage they are causing to the planet. Images were quite beautiful and amazing. What I liked most was the scenery and the wonderful landscapes that were shown. I think that the images were original and unexpecting (also quite beautiful). Maybe I would change the narrator because he was kind of boring, I they had made the film more comercial, it would attract more people. Polar bears, they were so sweet! and the shark because he made spectacular jumps.
6. How climate change is affecting us and it encourages the people to start taking action.
7. - Yes, of course this film has opened my eyes and I hope that in the future I will be able to collaborate actively with some groups or taking action in my daily life.
- Yes, because we only have one planet, and if we don't take care of it, then it will disappear with all of us.
8. That, in order to improve the situation in the world, we need to start from little things such as recycling, saving water and saving energy.

1)Polar bear,seal, a lot of kinds of birds, elephants, lions, guepard, lynx, monkeys, pinguins, dolphins, wales, jelly fish, walrus and deers.

2)The climatic change provokes the meelting of the poles an this has many consequences, such as the polar bear can die because they do not have food. This also affects to the acuatic life such as the wales because if this problem continues they can not emigrate so they would die too.
The film shows most beutiful parts of our world with the aim of make aware us about the things that we can loose.

3)The pollution that increase the temperature; desforestation; the modern society with its new technologies that causes pollution and the whole in the ozone layer.

4)The main aim is to reduce pollution so we can use public transport instead of private cars, moreover we can use renovable energy. Furthermore, to avoid deforestation we can stop cutting trees and we can plant more in order to they produce oxygen .

5)Our opinion about the film is that at the begginin it is interesting because there are very beutiful images, but at the end it is a little bit boring, because it is always the same animals. Our favourites animals are the polar bears, specially the little ones because they are lovely.

6)To make aware about what we can loose if the climatic change continues.

7)Yes,I feel more aware about the future of our planet because the film shows as in a very realistic way what is happening in the world.

8)That you must think about the problems that lead the climatic change but you must take action on your own.

1.Bears, Foxes, Paradise Birds, Gulls, Elphants, Walrus, lions, penguins, flamingoes, sharks, whales, dolphins, antilope, wild pigs.

2. Extreme temperatures change the world dramaticaly. An increase on the temperature in summer,leads to a scarce of water. Animals die because of the lack of water.
The increase of temperature melts the poles and the polar bears die, if this continues they will be extinguished by 2030. The melting of the poles causes floods on the coast and the shrimps that are the food for lot of species will die because they need the ice to survive.

3. The poles melt, Extreme temperatures continue increasing and killing, species extiguish because of the floods that the poles melting cause. If the ozone layer countinues disappearing we will die burned.

4. The prohibition of the CFC Spays, The reduction of the emissions of CO2, reforestation,

5. We liked the film very much because it shows the reallity and the beauty of the world that we must preserve and defend.
The polar bears were spectaculllarly beautiful and it encourages us to try to save it.
The polar bear is strong enough to survive now, but if the melting of the poles continue it will die because it wouldn¡t be able to feed itself.
The paradise bird.

2-The film shows the consequences of the human activity by the production of CO2, that the polar regions are melting, and the animal are dying.
