EMA Honors Jim Fowler
Jim Fowler was honored by the Environmental Media Association (EMA) on October 11, 1998 in Los Angeles, California. He received EMA's inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of his 35 years of work introducing millions of television viewers to wildlife and wilderness. Julia Louis-Dreyfus of TV's Seinfeld presented the award.
Jim served as host of Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom and Mutual of Omaha's Spirit of Adventure. In addition to ongoing appearance of many network talk shows, Jim has been the wildlife correspondent for NBC's Today Show since 1988, and he was a regular on the Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. In 1997, Jim became a wildlife expert on Discovery Communication's Animal Planet network.
Jim's mission, as a highly respected authority on nature, is to affect public attitudes so that people around the country will help protect wildlife habitat and influence appropriate governmental policy. For more information on Jim's work, see Jim Fowler's Wild Planet, sponsored by Land's End.
Global Communication for Conservation (GCC) presented Jim with the 1995 Safari Planet Earth Award for his outstanding achievements in caring for our planet.

The Environmental Media Association was created in 1989 to serve as a link between the entertainment industry and the environmental community. EMA's mission is to mobilize the entertainment industry in a global effort to educate people about the environment and inspire them to act on those problems now.
