1,000 Voices 'Live'  (DVD) :  This 33 minute video captures the magic and educational content of a Peter Puffin’s Whale Tales concert experience.  Excellent for home and at school to reinforce the environmental literacy, self-esteem boosting, and community-building concepts introduced at a 'live' show.

Peter Puffin & the Whale Tales Tour '97 Video (Live Concert DVD or VHS)Recorded in June, 1997, on the final day of a 220 school tour, this hour long production captures the early days of Peter's touring show. Includes rare performances of songs that have not been included on Peter's first two releases.  Also includes the 'live' favourites: Bike Helmet Blues and The Whales Are Waiting, where student volunteers wear costumes of whale tails and a puffin.

Song For The Earth (DVD or VHS & Teaching Activities)This package has been bought by over five hundred school boards and educators across North America. The production has been broadcast nationally over forty times on First/Choice Super Channel, reaching an estimated half million homes each broadcast, and generating a great deal of conservation artwork and letter mail from kids. Winner of the Great Canadian Shorts Contest (Prize $5,000)!

A blend of images of endangered species and spaces (many in Canada) set to an evocative soundtrack by Jim Scott, with accompanying activities.

The Conservation Trilogy (DVD or VHS & Teaching Activities) These three programs (all on one video) encourage environmental literacy and come with curriculum tied activity suggestions and black-line masters of student worksheets. All three productions have been broadcast on national TV in Canada!

  • Video #1: What A Land, What A Sky showcases images from a six-week wilderness adventure across Canada. An excellent addition to language arts, science, geography and music programs.

  • Video #3: Broken Beauty: The Ballad Of Block D explores the fragile beauty of a large tract of undeveloped land on the downtown Kingston (Ontario) waterfront. The question is not necessarily: should development occur? But more accurately: What type of development, and for whom?

Includes lesson activities/worksheets for all 3 productions
