Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The series ZOO CLUES will keep 13-16 year-old viewers engaged for 30 minutes with the nearly infinite visual richness, animal characteristics, and wild range of animal behaviors. Beyond its target audience, both older and younger audiences should find this look across the amazing world of animals fascinating. Beyond basic engagement, ZOO CLUES will leave viewers with a meaningful perspective about animals and meaningful comparisons to their own human characteristics. The variety of the animal kingdom is truly odd and bizarre enough to read like fiction, but the clever narration of ZOO CLUES links disparate information together in a way that always makes clear that what viewers see is real, natural, and relates to their own life in the real world.
