More To Life

Have you ever seen the show Zaboomofoo? Well if you've got kids at home, it's likely the most popular program in your house. Everyday the Kratt brothers get to play with an incredible array of animals, while kids at home learn about extinction and conservation. So where do all those animals come from? Jodi and Dale Gienow know. They've supplied many furry stars to the production. They're also the directors of the Muskoka Wildlife Centre, an educational park that houses a variety of animals native to Ontario. And Jodi and Dale are here with some of their favourite critters to take your calls. Earlier this summer high above Burnaby Ontario, a slightly misshapen maple leaf fell towards earth. That maple leaf was made up of 33 women skydivers. Nathalie Gaudreault, Rhonda Joyce and relative newbie Kate McArthur tell us how their talent and perseverance won them the Canadian women's record for formation skydiving. This show contains a Studio 2 segment, 'Facing South'.
