SINGAPORE, 21 April 2022: Building on the success of the award-winning series Ocean Treks, Princess Cruises announced earlier this week the debut of a new digital series titled Ocean Treks Conservation Connections.
The new series running for 28 episodes, features short stories about environmental management, wildlife conservation, and sustainability. It includes original content hosted by Environmental Ambassador Jeff Corwin and Princess Cruises President John Padgett. The first episode was available for viewing Tuesday on the cruise line’s YouTube channel.
“In keeping environmental protection as one of our top priorities, we’re eager to leverage our popular Ocean Treks brand and its library to create new videos to share important sustainability stories about our fleet,” said John Padgett, Princess Cruises president. “With Environmental Ambassador Jeff Corwin, my co-host and renowned biologist, wildlife advocate and host of many award-winning television programs, we hope viewers are engaged as we discuss the importance of conservation both to Princess and us personally.”
The new Ocean Treks Conservation Connections videos will feature the following topics:
- Recycling and sustainability
- Food waste reduction and biodigester system
- Conservation at Princess Cays
- Leveraging shore power and energy efficiency
- Advanced Wastewater Treatment System
- Innovative fuel sources
- Advanced Air Quality System
Ocean Treks debuted in 2016 as part of Carnival Corporation’s Ocean Originals slate of television programmes, which also includes Vacation Creation and The Voyager with Josh Garcia, which aired on ABC and NBC, respectively. The original content was part of the corporation’s focus on producing and broadly distributing engaging and compelling experiential content. The original series has been honoured with 7 Daytime Emmy nominations and 44 Telly Awards, which recognize the best in broadcast and cable TV, digital and streaming. Ocean Treks is also available on-demand in staterooms onboard Princess ships and via OceanView.
