Thursday evening, I was privileged to attend a screening for Jeff Corwin’s The Vanishing Frog, a new Animal Planet Documentary in Charlotte,
During the day, Jeff Corwin was able to visit local Charlotte schools and talk with the students. One of the audience members asked Mr. Corwin about the types of questions that he was asked. He said that his favorite question from students was always the ones that asked “How can I help?” His reply was to start by looking in your local town or community for a “species in crisis” or for other ways that you could get involved with any community organization or efforts to help the environment. He then proceeded to discuss his first encounter with nature. As an inner city kid, there were no backyard areas to observe nature so his father would take him to the “inner city pond” where he discovered frogs and their world. He now has a passion for nature that he shares with the entire world through his documentaries on Animal Planet.
The Vanishing Frog will premier November 20th at 8:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on Animal Planet. Also on November 20th, subscribers to Discovery Education Science will find the episode available for the classroom. If you would like more information about The Vanishing Frog, check out the following links:
