This month, Jeff Corwin’s new show Wildlife Nation premiered on ABC as part of the network’s educational programming. The show focuses on conservation heroes and efforts to save endangered species. With COVID putting the brakes on international travel, Jeff and his team targeted North American stories, including in his home state of Massachusetts. The production crew visited our Sea Turtle Hospital back in June and followed our Rescue team as they released rehabilitated turtles back into the wild.

The episode featuring the Aquarium’s sea turtle conservation work is set to air on Saturday, Oct. 16! Wild Life Nation with Jeff Corwin airs locally on ABC at 10:00 a.m. on Saturdays. Check your TV listings for details.

Here’s a sneak peek at the series:
