JBBW takes home the Emmy!

Last night was pretty exciting! The entire Blue World team attended the 2010 New England Emmy Awards because we were nominated for 3 categories. (Best Children's Program, Best Cinematography and Best Segment.) Of course we wanted to win all three :-) but we were thrilled to take home the Emmy Award for best segment! This is an adult category, proving that Jonathan Bird's Blue World is fun for the whole family! Check out a video of the acceptance speech.

Mangroves might not seem like an exciting subject, like sharks or sea turtles, but they perform an important function in the ocean. Learn all about the importance of mangroves and the interesting ways these plants live half-submerged in sea water in this fun segment from season 2!
