Based on NWF’s multi-award-winning preschool magazine, “Wild Animal Baby,” the standout show comes to life with an irresistible combination of lovable 3D animated characters and stunning high-definition live-action footage. Showing kids and their caregivers that that every backyard or neighborhood is a fertile playground for exploration, Animalitos Salvajes Exploradores, sweeps young viewers along on interactive explorations by land and by sea, teaching them about nature and creatures big and small – while fostering an enduring appreciation for the great outdoors.
Vme’s young viewers join five lovable and intrepid wildlife characters, the “NSI” (or Natural Science Investigators) unit as they explore the natural world around them. Tied together with dynamic live-action interstitials that inspire young viewers to “be out there” Animalitos Salvajes Exploradores showcases real young children and families engaging in simple and easily executable outdoor activities that reinforce their appreciation of nature – whether they live in the country or the city.
“Animalitos Exploradores fosters early nature exploration and helps preschoolers understand the world around them,” said Guillermo Sierra, senior vice president of programming at Vme. “By bringing Wild Animal Baby Explorers to Vme, we are able to expose young viewers to the beauties of the natural world and foster a respect for nature that lasts them a lifetime.”
