Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. This half-hour weekly series is designed and produced to educate children aged 13-16 about the rescue, rehabilitation and, in many instances, release back into the wild of ocean wildlife. Sea Rescue offers educational and entertaining television by demonstrating the welfare and medical benefits that rescue and rehabilitation programs provide animals. This program seeks to educate viewers that there's a reciprocal benefit to sea animal rescue: rescued animals provide valuable insight into their biology and ecology and the information obtained adds to the pool of knowledge necessary to conserve threatened and endangered species. Each week, Sea Rescue seeks to 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 Saturday, 10/13/12, 10/20/12, 11/03/12, 11/10/12 and 11/24/12 episodes were preempted for live ABC network sports coverage of College Football.
