Eliza vs. the poachers. (Tools for green living: resources for eco-awareness and action).

A cartoon that vilifies poachers but supports the environment and animal rights has to be good news, so E readers should stand up and cheer for the release of The Wild Thornberrys Movie, a feature based on the popular Nickelodeon series. As always, Eliza Thornberry (voiced by Lacey Chabert) is the plucky girl who can talk to animals, accompanying her nature film-making parents on adventures around the world, this time in Africa where evil poachers are on the prowl. The message is soft-pedaled for young viewers, and the African bush on display here--with its untouched teeming savannahs dotted by the occasional native village--is about 100 years out of date, but kids will get the idea, and cheer when the elephants and rhinos win and those poachers are brought to justice.
