Plans Dedicated Full-Day Programming

New Delhi, June 1st, 2006: Why are so many plants and animals changing their age-old habits? Why are the sandhill cranes migrating from their temperate zones later than normal and returning earlier than expected? Why have the golden toad of Monteverdi and other species disappeared from the tropical rainforests of Costa Rica? To answers these questions and show viewers how they can contribute towards the cause of environment conservation, Animal Planet will present twelve engaging programmes on June 5, the World Environment Day, highlighting global wildlife and environment issues.

The special 12-hour programming line-up will air on June 5 on Animal Planet from 12 noon to 12 midnight.

Animals like tiger, panda and dolphin are in danger of extinction across the world. Under threat of fire, habitat destruction, hunting and poaching, environment changes, many other species are becoming endangered. Highlighting the tiger poaching in India, the channel will air an India-specific programme- Tiger Zero. Wildlife conservationist Valmik Thapar, the narrator of programme will raise concern over the dwindling tiger population. The temperature in the Arctic region has been rising by as much as one and a half degrees centigrade per decade. The ice cover is reducing posing a threat to the polar bears, seals and penguins living in the region. Animal Planet through its programmes will raise concern over the vanishing population of these animals.
