A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Many animal facts are sprinkled throughout each episode.
The show has strong messages supporting conservation and the protection of wildlife.
Positive Role Models
The kids are really dedicated to helping rescue and save animals. That said, there's very little adult supervision, and the kids sometimes make iffy choices -- like running off alone.
Violence & Scariness
Some of the animals might be a little scary for very young or sensitive viewers.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that while this show about kids who rescue animals is mostly positive and educational, with strong messages about conservation, not all of the "good guys" always behave perfectly appropriately. In one episode, for example, a girl who should have known better runs off into the bush and gets lost in a very dangerous area. Also, some of the animals might be scary for sensitiveor very young viewers.
Is It Any Good?
For a show with dialogue as forced as this -- not to mention one that stretches the bounds of plausibility (grade-school kids out in the wilderness with few, if any adults around?) -- it's actually surprisingly engaging. Yes, the animal facts get a tad tedious, as do the stock characters. But somehow it works more often than not and leaves you with a pleasant feeling. Young animal lovers are bound to be entertained (and might learn a few things, too).
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.
