This delightful series is a wonderful way to broaden your family's familiarity with the diversity of the natural world. Bird and his team are a wealth of marine biology knowledge, and the show's style invites enthusiasts of all ages to learn about life under the sea.

While the show doesn't specifically discuss issues like conservation and environmentalism, it is a great way to start conversations with your kids about the relationship between humans and creatures of the wild.

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.
