Casting Call: National Geographic Television Seeks Host for New Natural-History TV Show
National Geographic Television is planning to produce a new series about wildlife around the globe. They are searching for someone to host the show, and asked The Wildlife Society to spread the word. According to the show’s producers, they are seeking a male aged 35-55 with a solid background in natural history and willing to travel. Here’s their description:
From snow leopards in Bhutan to silverbacks in Uganda to monster fish in the depths of the ocean, our host will bring viewers around the globe into remote places to witness the most incredible wildlife nature has to offer. Whether he’s a scientist (primatologist, marine biologist, etc.) or a generalist (conservationist, wildlife journalist), the host must have a passion for and curiosity about all wildlife and conservation and be comfortable traveling to remote areas. This host must have the charisma and personality to headline a series. Previous on-camera experience is preferred but not required, as host will need to speak directly to the camera, interact with interview subjects (both scripted and on the fly), and also have a great voice for narration.
If you’re interested, email NGTV at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell them why you’re right for the job, and send a picture and a video link. Videos do not have to be professional, but submissions without pictures or video will not be considered. (A U.S. passport and full background check will be required for all finalists.) Good luck!
European Wildlife Network (EWN) Launches Website
The European Wildlife Network has recently launched its website. The main page is public, and anyone who professionally shares their interests (European wild mammals and birds) and agrees with their mission is welcome to join. There is no cost for membership. It is an interactive (social) website, and the contents will be entirely dependent on member contributions. It is hoped that the site will function as a forum where researchers, managers, and decision makers across Europe can find each other and interact.
