The C word being conservation, of course.
Thats according to Tristan Bayer, who will be hosting Caught In The Moment along with Vanessa Garnick, premiering on the all-animal network July 10.
Bayer says he and Garnick are childhood friends who share more than just a passion for adventure and nature films but also a willingness to champion wildlife conservation on their show.
According to Bayer, Animal Planets programs have until now shied away from conservation issues.
Bayer says, they dont even use the word, though he says hes not sure if thats viewer- driven or a political problem.
In Bayers words, If we can show people both the animals and the people like us who care about them, then it wont be so preachy.
Caught In The Moments premiere episode goes to Costa Ricas Turtle Beach, where 150,000 turtles at a time gather on a one-kilometer stretch of beach.
