Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Animal Atlas is an entertaining and educational half-hour program that explores the world of animal wildlife, promoting a better understanding of how various animal species live and what they need to survive. With an entertaining narrative, the series combines focused examinations of certain topics such as "Animal Appetites" (which explores the various diets of animals along with information about how animals catch and eat their food, how diets determine their lifestyle, etc.), "Animal Antics", (a hilarious look at the crazy physical antics and talents of certain species), "Animal Babies" (an intimate look at babies of various species, how they are born, how they are raised and the difficulties and delights of growing up), along with shows which focus solely on certain animals such as elephants, bears, and monkeys. In these shows a thorough and entertaining exploration of the specific animal takes the viewer into that animal's world as we see where it lives, how it eats, how it plays, how the family unit operates, and what threatens and supports its survival. Animal Atlas also promotes responsibility toward wildlife issues by educating the viewer about endangered species and wildlife habits, as well as informing viewers how to support wildlife conservation.
