The ballad of Lisa the lemur

Listen to a song about a lemur and what's happening to her home.


Do the preparation task first. Then listen to the song and do the activities.

Song and lyrics © Andy Henley/Tym King; Animation by Cambridge English Online


Lemurs like Lisa are in danger because the forests are being cut down. Do you know about any other animals which are losing their environment?

Or it can be a bittersweet ending? I like a happy ending in a song about animals, like this.

Lisa needs a tree. If I make that song I will put up a giant tree for Lisa, and that a man doesn't cut it to give it a happy ending!

Poor Lisa! We just think we only think about producing wood, we cut down trees and we do not know that many animals live in them. :(
