Through Animal Atlas, viewers discover the variety of places that animals live, how they find food, and how they play. The show also looks at how family units operate, from a community of thousands of prairie dogs, to a pride of lions, to a school of fish.

Include any other comments or information you want the Commission to consider in evaluating your compliance with the Children's Television Act (or use this space for supplemental explanations). This may include information on any other noncore educational and informational programming that you aired this quarter or plan to air during the next quarter, or any existing or proposed non-broadcast efforts that will enhance the educational and informational value of such programming to children. See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. The station did not broadcast analog this quarter. The license's response to Question 7 (b) therefore assumes that the station's current main program stream serves as the equivalent to the station's former analog channel. After due review of station records and documentation to us by program suppliers, the licensee certifies that the station has fully complied at 47.C.F.R. Section 73.670 with respect to all programs specifically designed for children ages 12 and under that were not "educational or informational."
