Teens Wanted For New Marine Wildlife TV Show

#OnTV - RTÉ is on the lookout for Irish teenagers to take part in a new marine wildlife documentary series shooting in Australia later this year.

Blue Zoo will follow a group of eight young people - four from Ireland and four from Australia - working together at the New South Wales Blue Zoo, assisting "dolphins, seals and turtles who have been rescued and rehabilitated or bored into human care in the park".

The show's producers are seeking 14- to 15-years olds with an interest in conservation work and making the world a better place - and who can explain why this would be their dream in 100 words or less.
