Killing Gorillas

Lesson Where Art Shows the NEGATIVE and POSITIVE Impact of People on the Environment.

Below is the final installment, for now, in our series of illustrations from our students showing what they believe to be destructive to our ecosystem. Here the students focus on hunting and setting snares to trap gorillas and other animals in the forest.

Warning! Life if not always a pretty picture.

It is visually apparent our students are familiar with what may occur inside the forest, a place bordering on their homes and farms. It is our hope, Team AoC, that during classes we can foster a greater appreciation and awareness of the gorillas and environment not because we told our students they must, but because they choose to for reasons which resonate within. I’m feeling optimistic, especially with the children we work with, that a broader understanding is being recognized of why protecting our ecosystem is so important to us all.

    Wow, you’re not afraid to tackle the tough topics. I hope these kids have never seen any of this violence first hand and I’m glad you’re feeling confident about their understanding.

    Sorry “beautiful” – and bold to say the least! I hope the children grow up remembering these horrible acts and preventing them in their forest.
