Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The key educational objective of WILD AMERICA is to familiarize children with the animals of the North American content, their interaction with other animals and their environment. Throughout the series emphasis will be placed upon protecting endangered species and the impact that humans have while interacting in their environment. Each episode of the series will be specific to a particular animal. Topics will range from basic food gather, mating, natural enemies, relationships to other animals, and the interaction of the specific ecology on the survival of the species. We expect that children viewing the program will achieve a greater understanding of nature and specific animal species because of the up-close and detailed photography of the series. Through this understanding, it is hoped children will better relate to the natural environment as it exist in North American and learn to protect its natural species.
