Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The half-hour weekly series, Ocean Mysteries, offers a fresh approach to the quest for aquatic understanding by blending stories of fascinating sea creatures, comparisons to popular land animals, and analogies to human experience. Hosted by Jeff Corwin, Ocean Mysteries is produced for ages 13-16 - and beyond -by showing how animals share the same behaviors, challenges and triumphs that humans do. From exciting rescues of abandoned animals to unexpected conflicts in the 'family dynamics' of the mingling species, viewers will get to know - and care- about these heroes, and all of the fascinating life teeming in our oceans
