Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Frontier Earth is an informative series about animals that are hard to find or study, but it contains frequent images of animals attacking their prey, lying dead, or being mistreated by humans that might disturb younger viewers. The series also highlights the importance of respecting animals and their habitats, as well as strong messages about the importance of protecting them.
Is It Any Good?
Frontier Earth offers some interesting details about species of animals -- from insects to poisonous primates -- that most humans will never get to see in the wild. But the show is as much about the animals as it is the people who are dedicating themselves to studying and protecting them.
Animal lovers will be fascinated by the unique animals featured here, but they may find themselves struggling through the scenes showing animals dying or being mistreated. They may also find themselves inspired to learn more about these (and other) animals, as well as the different things we need to do if we want to ensure that they will continue to survive.
