Earth Rangers and the internationally successful children’s animation series from Pukeko Pictures, the WotWots are proud to announce their partnership for the production of four “Life in Crisis” interstitials.
These two minute interstitials will be broadcast during episodes of the WotWots on Treehouse (Canada). These interstitials will focus on the WotWots and their stewardship of Earth Rangers Bring Back the Wild!™campaign’s featured endangered animals; the monarch butterfly, the spotted turtle, the American marten and the plains bison.
“We are proud of our growing partnership with Pukeko Pictures. From the first day we began working together, it was clear that both Pukeko Pictures and Earth Rangers share a similar commitment to educate, inspire and enable children to make a difference by protecting biodiversity through saving endangered animals and their habitats!” said Mark Northwood President and Co-CEO of Earth Rangers.
“This is the first of many great initiatives we will collaborate with Earth Rangers on – we both recognize the importance of preschoolers celebrating and appreciating the animal kingdom. the WotWots communicate this powerful message via their journey of discovery and exploration in the television series and Earth Rangers share this information through their interactive grassroots and community campaigns, so together we are spreading the word” said Sir Richard Taylor, Co-Founder of Weta Workshop.
As of October 4th the WotWots can be seen on Treehouse weekdays at 12.10pm (EST).
