RTÉ wants YOU!!
Don’t miss this unique opportunity!
Blue Zoo the ULTIMATE MARINE WILDLIFE Adventure Documentary Series is set to commence principal photography with Air Pig Productions, David Atkins Enterprises, Australian television and RTÉ Young People’s Ireland in Australia in October of 2013.
Over seven weeks filming in New South Wales Blue Zoo will see Australian and Irish teens work and train together at a marine wildlife park with dolphins, seals and turtles who have been rescued and rehabilitated or born into human care at the park.
Blue Zoo is looking for 14 – 15 year olds who are motivated to make the world a better place, who love to be challenged and be part of a team and have a genuine interest in conservation. Rookies need to be available to travel to Australia for seven weeks of filming. Do you have what it takes to be one of our MARINE 8 Rookies?
Exciting, dramatic and detailed observational documentary stories will be set within a format structure which will see the teens train dolphins and seals, take part in rescue operations, help overhaul the park and learn new skills in bootcamp training sessions –this is just part of what our Marine 8 Rookies will get from this experience.
If this is your dream then Blue Zoo is dying to hear from you!
