Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this show underscores the importance of conservation and educates viewers about the wildlife victims of environmental imbalance. The hosts are reverent of all nature and openly share their distress at human involvement in its demise. Younger kids may be upset by scenes of animals killing and eating others, and parents may find themselves answering questions about animal behavior.
Is It Any Good?
Bayer and Garnick alternate narration duties, combining educational information with their own observations. Much of the time they're in front of the camera together, and their unscripted conversations give the show an intimate, relaxed feel. The two are clearly passionate about the preservation of the nature they experience, and it's easy to get caught up in their excitement over each new creature they encounter.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
