The Los Angeles Zoo announced on May 6 they have partnered with award-winning actors, Mongabay and the University of Montana to present “Endangered: Short Tales for the Nearly Forgotten,” a podcast anthology celebrating species that are on the verge of extinction.
The series will begin releasing episodes on Endangered Species Day, May 21. The anthology podcast is geared toward kids but has adult appeal using narrative storytelling alongside up-to-date facts and a call to action to bring attention to the seven featured species.
Each 10-minute episode features a different endangered species and is focused on raising awareness, celebrating biodiversity in the animal kingdom and a strong, diverse human community. Each episode highlights a nonprofit organization working with the featured species. The entire cast and crew have donated their talent and time to the project. Many of the cast members recorded safely at home from different parts of the world, from Namibia to Native land in Montana.
“With the pandemic shedding a new light on the fragility of human health and society, the animal kingdom shows us that celebrating and honoring diversity can be a vital tool for survival,” creator Graham Sibley said.
“The L.A. Zoo is proud to be a part of the ‘Endangered’ podcast, helping bring attention to lesser-known endangered animals through thoughtful storytelling that otherwise might never be told,” Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association President Tom Jacobson said.
