- I can't keep having this argument.

- DAD:
Well, too bad!

We had it yesterday, we're having it now,

we're going to have it tomorrow.

MUM:
Not if I take Edmund

and move to my mum's.

EDMUND:
Here's the rest of my deposit.

Can I book you for tomorrow?

[COMPUTER BEEPS]

"Slip 12. We push off by 8:00."

Here goes.

DAD:
So that's it? You're just giving up?

MUM:
Why not? You have.

What kind of an example is this setting?

DAD:
What do you want me to do?

MUM:
Something! Anything!

Things can't go on like this.

You're useless.

NIM:
"Habitat destruction is the biggest

threat to rare and endangered species

"by constantly developing or destroying

entire ecosystems in the name of progress."

I don't think tacky pirate resorts

can be called progress, Selk.

"Some scientists believe we lose

"one endangered species an hour

to extinction,

"which could be why biodiversity

is on the decline on every continent."

I've been up all night looking

for something bigger than protozoa.

[SNUFFLING]

Right. We need something more

Selkie-sized to save our home.

This could be it!

[BARKS EXCITEDLY]

Current endangered species list.

Bilby Bandicoots, Southern Cassowaries,

Bulmer's Fruit Bats,

Fijian Crested Iguanas,

Mahogany Gliders.

There's so many.

NIM:
It used to be impossible

to protect our island,

but the law changed two years ago.

So all we have to do is prove there are

three or more endangered species

on the island

and no one can build anything on it.

It becomes a protected habitat.

Look, it's a great idea.

I just don't think we can afford
