Cartoon Production Information:


Released as an episode of "The ABC Afterschool Special." This was the first in that series.

The special was described in a trade brochure as "a lesson not only in the importance of conservation, but in a reverence for life- all life."

The Teleguide for the program, suggesting a number of activities for students of various levels, was written by Augusta Goldin and the editors of Scholastic Teacher.

The ABC Mailing Report showed that "teachers who had given the special as an assignment found the discussions and compositions most gratifying." One teacher continued, "Such a bold portrayal of wanton destruction took tremendous courage on your part." The movie has been translated into several languages, and is now in international syndication.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.

It is a shame that this fine "movie" doesn't have any reviews. I clearly remember back in 1972 watching the "Last of the Curlews" on tv after school.

The story of human's impact on the natural world was very moving....  (read more)
