This content pack contains science and social emotional learning activities about ecosystems, the value in diversity, and what you learn when you don’t judge a book by its cover.
WWF and DreamWorks Animation have teamed up to raise awareness about the plight of the real wildlife depicted in the new animated movie The Bad Guys. Join us for a discussion with the film’s director, Pierre Perifel, and WWF’s Northern Great Plains program officer Noelle Guernsey about how these and other “bad guys” really aren’t bad at all. We’ll learn why animals, from wolves to prairie dogs and black-footed ferrets, are important despite their misguided reputations and why biodiversity is essential for the health of our planet.

About the Partnership
The Bad Guys
The Bad Guys tells the story of Mr. Wolf, Mr. Snake, Mr. Piranha, Mr. Shark, and Ms. Tarantula and their attempt to become model citizens. The movie may call these animals “The Bad Guys,” but when it comes to roles in their natural ecosystem, animals like wolves, sharks, snakes, tarantulas, and piranhas do a lot of good. In fact, all organisms a valuable role in keeping their native ecosystems balanced and thriving. While WWF works to protect wolves, snakes, piranhas, sharks, tarantulas, and other wildlife and their habitats, DreamWorks Animation takes you on an adventure with these misunderstood creatures.
