“One of my favorite sayings is that, ‘in the end, we protect what we love, we love what we understand, and we understand what we are taught.’ By having the privilege of hosting Mundo Salvaje, it is my sincere hope that viewers will learn about and love some of the many wonders of our world’s wildlife while understanding that we are all connected to it. The reality is that the fate of wildlife and the health of our natural world is an indicator and a reflection of the quality of life for all of us. By protecting nature, we are protecting ourselves. On this 50th anniversary of Earth Day, we must all remember that we have not inherited this earth from our parents, we are borrowing it from our children.”
“Our mission in “Mundo Salvaje with Ron Magill” is to awaken curiosity in children and families in an entertaining way. The more we learn about animal behavior, the more involved we will become in protecting them,” commented Laura Masnatta, Executive Producer of HITN TV and added, “In these times that we live, overwhelmed by bad news, take a breather and be amazed with some of the most amazing creatures in our planet, featured in episodes such as: “The Animal Call”, “The Big Trips”, “Super-Cool Animals” and the “Attraction Between Species”. It’s time to make Nature our priority!”
