Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom is coming back with a new host, a new format, and new stories about the world’s wildest places and creatures.
Wild Kingdom has been re-imagined as a web series. Every Sunday evening in November, a new episode will be released on WildKingdom.com and the Wild Kingdom YouTube channel.
Hosted by wildlife educator and global adventurer Stephanie Arne, winner of Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Guide contest, the new Wild Kingdom presents stories with fun graphics to create short, engaging “webisodes.”
Wild Kingdom online kicks off on Nov. 3 with “Reef Madness,” in which Arne dives with the Coral Restoration Foundation to explore efforts to save the precious coral reefs of the Florida Keys.
Other episodes in web series’ inaugural season include:
“Where the Buffalo Roam,” Nov. 10: What’s big, brown and built for survival? Wild Kingdom follows one of America’s iconic animals across the South Dakota plains.
“Tegu Invasion,” Nov. 17: Containing the unwanted guests that are taking over the Florida Everglades.
“California Condor: Extreme Survival,” Nov. 24: Back from the brink of extinction, the California Condor is stated to be one of the world’s great conservation success stories.
Each webisode will be posted at 6 p.m. CST and will then be available 24/7 on WildKingdom.com and the Wild Kingdom YouTube channel.
“It has been such a thrill to be part of the rebirth of Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom, and I’m excited to share four incredible adventures with viewers of all ages,” Arne said.
“From dedicated divers working to save Florida’s coral reefs to comebacks like the California Condor and the mighty bison, these stories highlight the resilience and beauty of the Wild Kingdom.”
