Animal Ethics is a BtN Special looking at some of the moral issues around keeping animals. Should tourists be riding elephants and patting tigers if the animals aren't being treated well? Then we ask if when we buy pets such as cats and dogs should they only come from certain breeders and not pet shops? And finally, we look at the shark net debate. Some argue that we shouldn't use nets because they harm and kill marine life.
In this 'Indigenous Connections' BtN Special we begin with the remarkable story of the indigenous kids who learn of their unique connection with the people of Nagasaki in Japan.
