Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The half-hour weekly series, Sea Rescue, features the rescue, rehabilitation and - in many instances - release back into the wild of ocean wildlife. Produced for ages 13-16, Sea Rescue offers educational and entertaining television by demonstrating the welfare and medical benefits that rescue and rehabilitation programs provide animals. Viewers will also learn that there's a reciprocal benefit: rescued animals provide valuable insight into their biology and ecology. This information adds to the pool of knowledge necessary to conserve threatened and endangered species. Each week, Sea Rescue will leave its audience inspired by the real-life stories of the featured animals and rescuers and with a fuller understanding of the rich array of sea life with which we share our planet. The regularly scheduled episodes were preempted by the ABC Network for live coverage of College Football.
