Nature´s Nurseries


Mammals, fish, insects, birds, reptiles, amphibians and even plants, they all share the same goal in life – to reproduce successfully. All of the species of this planet have developed their own special strategy to raise their offspring. In addition to the astounding and fascinating strategies in nature, the viewer gains a fundamental insight: It doesn´t matter whether a species has only one or a few or even a thousand „kids“: At the end of the life of the parent-animals, on average only two specimens of the offspring remain. If there are fewer, the species dies out. If there are more, the result is overpopulation.

Tartu Nature House Special Prize
An educational, clear and beautiful film about the continuity in the animal kingdom, the different ways of parental care and the balance that emerges from the points of contact between different species. Great stories of playing, learning and training of different species are very expressive. The film probably helps young viewers to appreciate the care of their parents and supports the knowledge that continuous learning to cope with life is not only important for humans, but is also very common in the animal kingdom.
