The Journey Home

When a solitary polar bear realizes there is no food for him in the Arctic, and that all the ice is melting, he decides to go for a swim to find some. Along the way, he finds a boat and sails across the ocean to the city, where he meets other endangered animals who all climb into the boat with him: an orangutan who is surrounded by tree stumps, an elephant who is trying to out-run a poacher, and a panda without a home. Together, they cross the seas in search of a place they can all call home. They finally come to a beautiful island and meet a dodo, who explains that they cannot return home until the trees are replanted, the ice stops melting, and the poachers stop hunting for tusks. What will tomorrow bring?

The Journey Home is a lyrical, thoughtful tale with real heart and a strong environmental message.
