Creative Animal’s Educational Programs

Today, it’s more critical then ever that we protect wildlife and wild spaces. Yet most people simply don’t see how they alone can make a difference.

But they can, and the Creative Animal Foundation’s Stephanie Arne and Tim Davison will show them how.

As animal experts with more than 20 years’ experience exploring the planet, they bring real-world expertise about the majesty of, and threats to, the natural world. Stephanie, the host of Mutual of Omaha’s “Wild Kingdom,” and wildlife artist, Tim, use personal, captivating stories to reveal how our individual actions – big and small –can truly change the world.

And Steph and Tim aren’t just speaking these truths – they’re living them. Through 2018, they’re traveling the nation in a tiny house on wheels, building an online community of over 1 million people while creating a video journal to showcase wildlife and people who are using their creativity to make the world a better place.

Their engaging, personable multimedia presentations to schools, community gatherings, festivals and corporate events speak to audiences of all backgrounds and ages, tailored for maximum impact and messaging. People love to peek inside their 200-square-foot home, and an Open House is guaranteed to bring visitors to your business or event. You’ll get the benefit of an online community of engaged people; access to video journals showcasing stories of from natural world; and inspiration to help your audience develop into creative animals themselves.

Since the Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, appearance fees are reasonable, and they even offer a number of visits to schools and non-profits for little or no cost. In keeping with a sustainable lifestyle, they’re open to providing appearances in exchange for goods or services they need on the road.
