The age-old question of “What makes the world go round” is answered in this program: Earthworms, bees, and other small creatures sustain the earth’s balance.


Learn from the stories in this collection of shorts - what impact do humans have on the environment? What are some good lessons on both flora and fauna habitat observation? In one film, the work of the humble earthworm is an essential part of our ecosystem. What happens to upset the balance when non-organic practices take place? In another short, based on real-life events, a valley in China expands the use of pesticides. Every summer, Jing Jing joins her parents in the family's efforts to relocate the declining bee population, who are also an essential part of the ecosystem and biodiversity.
