ZOOMOO, AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY THROUGH DIRECTV CHANNEL 432, CELEBRATES EARTH DAY AND THE YEAR OF THE MONKEY WITH THE ORANGUTAN FAMILY FUN SPECIAL
“All about animals, all the time,” ZooMoo zeroes in on the orangutan and all the endangered primates who are losing their natural habitat
ZooMoo is celebrating Earth Day and 2016 as the Year of the Monkey with the Orangutan Family Fun Special (Especial de la Familia Orangután). This show pays homage to all the different species of primates that are decreasing in numbers and increasingly facing threats to and loss of their natural habitats. During this program, the orangutan Baby DJ (Monito DJ) scans his family tree next to his father Douglas Orang to learn (and also teach) about the different primates that are part of their extended family, such as the chimpanzees, macaques, proboscis monkeys, Japanese macaques, langurs, gorillas and gibbons. The Orangutan Family Special airs Saturdays at 8am and 6pm ET / 7am and 5pm CT exclusively on DIRECTV’s channel 432.
The Orangutan Family Fun Special is not the only show on ZooMoo that features fascinating primates. In Storytime, Mom Orang’ (Mamá Orangután) reads stories about the animal world to her baby Baby DJ before bedtime.
