The dilemma of eating endangered species in Madagascar

Eight children are sent to visit the exotic island of Madagascar to discover how people and animals are able to survive there together. We see images of people selling brightly coloured clothes at the side of the road and women carrying large amounts of food on their heads to sell.

The children are shocked to discover how poor the people in the villages really are and that sources of protein are scarce. This has led the villagers to catch and eat bats which are an endangered species.

The Food Dilemma: in a place where protein is hard to find is it right that people endanger wildlife? Or should people find out if the wildlife they are eating provides greater advantages than being an easy meal? Would you eat them?
