What are some of the things that we can do to help reduce our impact on the planet’s resources? Meet three animals like a turkey vulture, opossum, or cockroach and how they taught us how to recycle. Find out how these animals have adapted to live their lives so close to humans and how they themselves help to clean up the environment.
