Our Ambassador Animals have not only reached hundreds-of-thousands of New England children, visitors and residents… but have been seen nationally on such programs as The Today Show, The Martha Stewart Show, LIVE with Kelly & Micheal, CNBC Squawk Box, Night Line and New York Live. Additionally, 2014 saw a “rebranding” of the Wildlife Encounters TV show we have been filming for 3 years for NH Community Television locally in partnership with Windhaam Community TV (WCTV-21).  Now called “Derek’s Wildlife Encounters Experience” – the show will feature different animals each month, interview special guests, and much more.  Shows will also be able to be viewed on the Wildlife Encounters YouTube Channel!!
