New series builds upon network’s legacy to showcase South Carolina’s rarest wildlife and protectors
South Carolina ETV (SCETV) will launch a new series called What’s Wild across its digital platforms on April 21. What’s Wild builds upon the network’s legacy to showcase South Carolina’s rarest wildlife and the amazing people who protect them.
Here is a taste of what viewers will learn from some of the upcoming episodes:
- Did you know that the Red Cockaded Woodpecker has a cooperative group system? Known as clans, within each group of Red Cockaded Woodpeckers there are "helpers" who take turns incubating the egg and raising the young.
- Did you know that dolphins have two stomachs? One stomach is used for storage while the other is used for digestion.
- Did you know "salamander" is a Greek term and translates to "fire lizard?" A common myth believed by people of the time was that salamanders were born from fire. This myth was formed because when people burned logs, the salamander’s natural habitat, salamanders would crawl out.
New episodes will be published on the SCETV Facebook page starting Thursday, April 21 at 1 p.m. In addition to the network’s Facebook page, viewers will also be able to watch What’s Wild on the SCETV app, the SCETV YouTube channel and on the SCETV website.
What’s Wild was produced by SCETV’s Charles Dymock. Viewers are encouraged to use #SCETVDigital on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to engage with SCETV and the creators of this new series.
