Subject: Into Alaska on Animal Planet
There is a new show on Animal Planet about Wildlife on Alaskan National
Wildlife Refuges. Each episode has three story lines. One is usually about
bears. One is sometimes about birds. One week they featured a Bald Eagle
that had been injured, rehabilitated, and released. This week they showed
a an educational program at Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. The Rangers set
up Mist Nets and caught a few birds for a children's educational program.
They talked about migration as well as the effect on birds of climate
change. The birds they caught included a Swainson's Thrush and a Dark-eyed
Junco. it was very educational for anyone interested in bird conservation
as well as teaching children about birds and bird conservation. This
episode will be repeated at 11 p.m. tonight, and probably at 9 p.m. next
Monday night. this show is more family-friendly then some on this network,
as it does not usually show dead animals, so would be suitable for
children. Does anyone know if there are programs like this in Arkansas for
school-aged children?
