The Educational Wildlife Foundation teaches school-age youth about wildlife and wildlife conservation through educational videos, DVDs and illustrated books.
EWF will create educational products such as user-friendly videos, DVDs, manuals, worksheets and books on wildlife for children from 1st through 12th grades, school teachers and libraries. T-shirts and stuffed animals will be created as companion objects that include information on a specific animal they are learning about.
EWF has prepared for initial filming of wildlife in California and Mexico by first consulting with scientists and other professionals from the Birch Aquarium, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the National Marine Fisheries Service, the San Diego Zoo and the San Diego Natural History Museum.
Upon receiving its tax-exempt status, EWF will spend 18 months to two years filming whales, polar bears and other marine life in the Hudson River area, Alaska and Mexico. Once visual materials are created, consultants will be retained primarily in San Diego to perform video editing and narration and to develop teachers' manuals and worksheets.
EWF intends to sell these products reasonably to resource and curriculum personnel in the school districts; Native American tribes conducting community environmental projects; and resource and purchasing personnel at local public libraries.
