The pilot and second episode will focus on animals and the importance of sanctuaries and zoos, while its third episode will address the need to adopt and care for rescued animals as pets instead of buying. Recycling and reusing plastic waste is at the heart of the 4e episode, while the 5e will show how trees protect the country’s watersheds and enable the ‘forest to tap’ process. There will also be episodes on sports, nutrition, literature, different forms of water, preservation of underwater marine life, and a coastal cleanup of Subic Bay and the town of Olongapo in Zambales. . The show is produced by creative production agency The Jumpcat Experiment with a grant from the National Endowment Fund for Children’s Television of the National Council for Children’s Television.
