Developed by former radio talk show host and nature educator, Constance Nelson, Bark Buddies® is an animated multimedia series that motivates kids to discover the great outdoors. Zymr Inc. and Planting Tomorrows - both US-based companies now grafted together as "Friends of Bark Buddies®", is dedicated to growing better global communities through engaging, nature-based entertainment.

"We're excited about 'Sparking a Nature-Child Reunion' and guiding kids to an interactive new 'fun-tier' - the great outdoors! The Bark Buddies® multimedia TV series is not just 'sit back and watch' TV, it's hands-on engagement with the best teacher of all: nature!" says P. Jayakumar, CEO Toonz Group.

We're focused on creating social media platforms that enable young children to appreciate the diversity of nature and society," said Ashok Desai, CRO & Founder of Zymr Inc.  

The Bark Buddies® series also promises to offer parents and educators a natural, integrated, cross curriculum approach on which earth sciences, nutrition, fitness, arts and sustainable life patterns can be taught through the power of play and direct experiences.

"Kids are born with an innate sense of wonder for nature and instinct to play - that's how they learn, so we're tapping into those natural senses and planting seeds of 'fun-by-nature' learning in every 'episeed' storyline," says creator Constance Nelson.

With eco-friendly merchandise based on the show's characters already making waves in McDonalds, Walmart, parades, classrooms, and events, the series is slated to branch out into books and games as well.
