This Special Episode:
The Wild Kratts crew lament the extinction of different animals in recent history and how they’ll never ever be able to see them. Aviva decides that it’s finally time to unveil her most secret invention yet – the Time Trampoline! Using the trampoline, the Wild Kratts jump back in time to meet the extinct species. Science Concept: Extinction – different types of animals can go extinct and disappear from the planet in a number of ways – habitat loss, overhunting, etc. Once an animal goes extinct, it is lost forever.
Animals can take you anywhere in science! Creature teachers Chris and Martin Kratt take 6- to 8-year olds and their families along on extraordinary animal-powered adventures in WILD KRATTS, a PBS KIDS series. The show transforms the Kratt Brothers, creators of the award-winning Kratts’ Creatures and Emmy-winning Zoboomafoo, into animated versions of themselves, allowing the real-life zoologists to visit wild animals in their little-seen habitats and showcase key science concepts along the way.
From elephants using physics to suck gallons of water with their trunks to a fleet of peregrine falcons that harness the force of gravity to speed through the air, each of the 40 new half-hour episodes of WILD KRATTS presents age-appropriate science inspired by the natural abilities of the animals that the Kratt brothers – and young viewers – meet. The debut series is a co-production of The Kratt Brothers Company and Emmy-winning 9 Story Entertainment.
