Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Wild America is targeted to children ages 13 - 16. The key educational objective of the program is to familiarize children with the animals of the North American continent, 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. 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, if is hoped children will better relate to the natural environment as is exists in North America and learn to protect its natural species.
