  • Mission:
  • To elicit public involvement of solutions to issues affecting animals and nature by promoting non-profit organizations around the world. Many organizations are too small or provincial to be known worldwide, in spite of their dedication and effectiveness. We will promote these organizations through our internet television station which showcases their work and elicits donations, memberships, or other support.

  • History:
  • Our organization was the first to bring to the public's attention the killing of dolphins during tuna fishing operations through a documentary film we produced, hosted by Dick Cavett in 1976. We followed that up with another Discovery Channel special on the issue in 1990, hosted by George C. Scott. This film was instrumental in StarKist, Chicken-of-the-Sea, and BumbleBee tuna deciding on becoming dolphin-safe companies. The power of video was very evident here. We have produced a variety of television specials on animal and nature issues for domestic and international broadcast. We are now dedicating our energies toward launching a web-based television station showcasing the heroic work of small and large non-profit organizations arond the world which are dedicated to solving issues that negatively impact wildlife and nature.
