Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

This award-winning series is an excellent choice for kids to watch on their own and for families to enjoy together. As human population and activities continue to increase, so does their affect on Earth's ecosystems and wildlife; Wild Chronicles offers an inspiring look at efforts to restore and protect our fragile environment and endangered species, encouraging kids to take part in local, and even global, conservation efforts. Thanks to its engaging format, even young kids -- and those who typically don't like or watch nature shows -- may find themselves fascinated. That said, parents should know that some segments show animals mating or attacking their prey.

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.
