The Atlantic Cod and Right Whale are now two local species which will be featured in a series of PSAs filmed this summer and airing in 2017 in time for Canada's 150th birthday. The Grizzly and Canada Lynx are two other focuses of the nationwide series.
First created in 1963, Hinterlands Who's Who was relaunched in 2003 to "rebuild the connection" audiences made through the original series. It presents interesting facts about the wildlife and this series of PSAs will also detail their impact on Canada's history and culture.
The videos will be made available in four formats - a four-minute web video, a 30-second video for the public, and a 30-second and 15-second video for children.
