The Panda Effect Every fortnight an original podcast that mixes discovery, pedagogy and escapism.
WWF France carries out long-term nature protection actions, the effects of which can often be measured over time. But if their work is never finally finished, it is important and primordial to celebrate their small victories. Whatever the project, every step forward, no matter how small, is essential. That's what it's all about. the Panda Effect this suspended moment when one lingers on good news, success, respite, to better resume the fight.
Based on the concept of the Panda Effect which celebrates a new victory every Friday, WWF France launched a series of podcasts at the beginning of 2020, the first season of which consists of ten episodes. Every fortnight, listeners have the opportunity to discover a species or a part of the world through the story of a volunteer, a researcher, a photographer ... who is committed day after day alongside the NGO for the protection of nature.
A tool for discovery, education and escape, this format allows listeners to plunge into the heart of the missions carried out by WWF France. In turn, listeners can explore the Amazon rainforest in search of a jaguar, scour the Mediterranean alongside cetaceans, head off to the French Alps to meet the wolf... or understand how our oceans and seabed are being impacted by human activity, plastic pollution, mass tourism and climate change.
The stories will slip into the ears of young and old alike, and through a unique immersion, they will help to understand the issues of nature protection.
To go even further and experience a unique immersion, the series associates each episode with an original musical creation with sound atmospheres recorded on location. Developed for the web, the series allows us to raise the awareness of everyone - young and old - and to question our relationship with living things and the wild world.
The first season alternates episodes in two different formats: long formats (about 30 minutes) which give the floor to several actors on a specific theme (the jaguar of French Guiana, the Ocean missions, the forests of New Caledonia, etc.) and short formats (5 to 10 minutes) which focus on specific projects carried and supported by WWF France.
