Nature Storybook

The Nature Storybook Toolkit is a free, online tutorial designed to help people create, and share, a professional-looking video that allows them to share their love of nature globally. This five-part course is broken down into a series of short videos, meaning you can follow along at your own pace. Follow along with Ian, as he learns how to create his own video! It was made possible by the IUCN Commission on Education and Communications  and Parks Canada
