Poo poo in Nature

Learning about ecology with animal poo - By looking at animal food and subsequent bowel movements, one can understand the circle of life and expand one’s responsibility and emotional development for nature. Kids can have fun watching claymation skits and songs that emphasize characteristics of animals. While watching the videos, they can also participate by making animal poo with clay.

The first episode "Lion Poo, the King of Smell," tells a story of Lion's poo and its terrible smell that can be recognized from a great distance. The second episode "The Giant Elephant Poo" tells the story of Elephant, who eats 300kg of food a day and can produce a massive 100kg poo. The third episode "Smoky Shark Poo" tells the story of Shark’s smoke-like poo in the water, and the seventh episode "Chinstrap Penguin’s Rocket Poo" tells the story of Chinstrap Penguin that learned to launch poo to protect its eggs.

"Poo Poo in Nature" started with the love of my daughter. The happiness and gratitude of a child when he or she has a good bowel movement is a beautiful experience that many parents can relate to. And it's something that we have in common with all life on Earth along the joy of birth. It is very interesting that such precious poo can represent the environment and characteristics of various life forms. Through this, I hope children learns that the lives of people and animals are both precious, and that the lesson becomes the foundation for understanding the value of coexistence.

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear “poo”? The bad smell, right? That is poo. It comes out of our bodies. It belongs to us. It is something that we create. Everyone poops! If you can’t avoid it, you should enjoy it! That’s why I want to understand “poo”, and that is the reason why I became a part of this project. Would you like to watch and understand it with me?
