Film maker Simon Saffigna has written to BCCAN about The Adventures of Wom Wom.
Simon writes: We want to help educate children, who are the next generation, on the importance of looking after the environment, their health, the animals and each other. Being a surf film maker and travelling the world, I have witnessed first hand the degradation of the environment, especially the oceans and waterways. I felt compelled to do something. I created a short 6 minute free film based around a baby wombat called WomWom who gives environmental messages to children.
Here is the link to view the free film on you tube.
You can see more about WomWom on his website www.theadventuresofwomwom.com

WomWom is the vehicle to help educate children on the importance of caring for the environment and the animals that we share it with.
There is also a book, Introducing WomWom, that accompanies the film. In addition there are 10 science readers written to the Australian curriculum (ACARA). These were recently released into the primary schools in Australia through educational publisher Scholastic.
