About

Here’s a wild concept: Send teens to save endangered species!

Teenagers, like many of us, see a planet in need. They see animals in danger of becoming extinct and want to make a difference. But it's hard to know where to start. Until now.

DESTINATION: CONSERVATION is a live-action TV show that sends teens, parents, and YOU on a mission to save endangered species in the far-flung corners of the world. Every episode recruits two passionate, young conservationists to embark on the adventure of a lifetime. 

Together with wildlife biologist and host, Nicholas Daines, they'll venture to the most exotic and remote locations on the planet to work side by side with established efforts to help animals on the brink of extinction.

Our very first destination... Borneo!

We’ll use funds to produce the first four episodes of DESTINATION: CONSERVATION on the island of Borneo. In each episode, we'll work with wildlife conservationists and local villages to rescue, rehabilitate, and release endangered animals like Sun Bears, Sea Turtles, Orangutans, and Pygmy Elephants.

By teaming up with us, you can share in the experience with early access to special content, your very own Panda Poop notebook, or even joining the production team in Borneo!

Kids entertainment that educates and inspires

We're hyper-passionate about creating empowerment television for kids and young adults that makes a massive and lasting difference for participates, viewers, and the planet. That includes the long list of animals in desperate need of attention and engagement.

With your help, we can educate and empower young people to learn, grow, and thrive. All while caring for endangered animals, big and small, on this wild planet we call home.

Thank you for joining our mission. We’re thrilled to take you on this incredible journey called DESTINATION: CONSERVATION! 

Strange and stunning creatures in need of our help!

Risks and challenges

Just like the wildlife we are working to rescue can be unpredictable, so can production challenges. We're likely to experience obstacles that pertain to international transportation, unexpected weather, equipment malfunction, and perhaps a mischievous monkey looking for a cameo. That said, our team has multiple decades of collective experience in television and film. We're not discouraged by bumps in the road. In fact, we expect them. We know the challenges, and with your support, we'll be ready. We believe these magical creatures deserve it, and we're prepared to everything in our power to make it happen!
