Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this show chronicles wildlife behavior in natural habitats, taking viewers on a virtual field trip of the world's varied ecosystems. Host Jeff Corwin admits his anxiety about the dangerous creatures he encounters, but it doesn't stop him from handling poisonous snakes or approaching an overly protective mother elephant and her baby. Younger kids may need a reminder to not go near unfamiliar animals themselves, and parents will want to brush up on their animal facts to answer kids' questions.
Is It Any Good?
Corwin isn't afraid to ham it up for the camera, and kids and adults alike will enjoy his good-natured goofiness and ad-libbed songs and jokes. The Jeff Corwin Experience is educational wildlife TV well suited for family viewing.
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.
