ZooMoo hosted earlier a panel discussion for parents and guardians on the importance of teaching kids about animals, nature and conservation.
The event held at Zoo Coffee in Ayala Malls Vertis North is led by journalist and environmental advocate Gregg Yan, lifestyle TV host and mom Kelly Misa-Fernandez and the Sales & Marketing Head of ZooMoo Asia Trippy Padilla.
ZooMoo is an English-language media channel that nourishes children’s Animal Quotient (AQ) through its library of shows that capture their attention and awaken their imagination. The channel provides deeper information about animals, their habitats, behavior, and characteristics in simplified yet visually appealing programs to younger audience.
Trippy Padilla said that ZooMoo aims to bring wildlife closer to kids and have worked with experienced filmmakers to create contents that are suitable to little kids, even 6 year-olds.
ZooMoo’s programming line-up follows five themes:
- Explore Time
- Create Time
- Play Time
- Puzzle Time
- Quiet Time
The channel also carries a strong message of conservation to help kids become more compassionate towards the creatures we share the planet with.
It was a fun morning event filled with exciting activities for the kids who came along with their parents and guardians like face painting and lots of different art materials which kept the little tykes busy while the adults talk about why it is important to introduce kids more to nature, animals and conservation activities.
Kelly Misa-Fernandez shared about the importance of finding the right balance for kids with regards to the use of gadgets but stressed about the advantages of digital technology in making useful information easily available to young learners. The role of a parent is to guide them through all these and give them access to programs that would shape them well just like the ones offered by ZooMoo.
Gregg Yan on the other hand said that everything starts at home. That educating kids about the animal world and exposing them to their natural habitats will give them a different appreciation about life – making them more caring, kind and responsible individuals.
