Bob Bekian and Michael Tobias Produce “The State of the Earth”
Loyal Studios has worked extensively in the past with foundations and groups involved in various causes –from the American Heart Association, to UNEP. The Dancing Star foundation came to Bob Bekian, understanding that Loyal Studios is willing to collaborate on projects aiming to better the welfare of Humanity and our planet. Alexandra Paul and Peter Kreitler of “Earthtalk Today” are in partnership with Dancing Star Foundation to create this 90 minute three-part special.
Dancing Star’s goal is “helping Humankind protect the natural world. [They hope to] sensitize people throughout the world to the critical importance of biodiversity, animal protection and conservation; and to instill a respect for all life, which can be demonstrated by even the most modest gestures of kindness, compassion and love in our everyday lives.” Michael Tobias wanted to bring the best scientists on the globe to discuss the state of the Earth.
“We believe in the work that Michael Tobias and Dancing Star Foundation is doing,” Bekian states, “so we worked in tandem to produce this project, which brought together some of the world’s top scientists.” The production focused on population, eco-system changes, and the importance of understanding where we need to target our efforts on the planet in order to prevent species from disappearing, or reducing our natural habitats as well as climate changes and *biodiversity hotspots.
*A “biodiversity hotspot” is defined as an area that contains at least 1,500 species of vascular plants, and has lost at least 70% of its native habitat. (See environmentforbeginners.com for a article detailing the “hotspot” definition.)
