Visit PBS Kids and PBS Parents to extend the learning with Wild Kratts educational games and parent-child activities

Wild Kratts joins the adventures of Chris and Martin Kratt as they encounter incredible wild animals, combining science education with fun and adventure as the duo travels to animal habitats around the globe. Each adventure explores an age-appropriate science concept central to an animal's life and showcases a rarely seen wildlife moment, all wrapped up in engaging stories of adventure, mystery, rescue, and the Kratt brothers' brand of laugh-out-loud-comedy that kids love.

The educational goals of Wild Kratts are to:

1) Teach six to eight-year-old viewers natural history and age-appropriate science by building on their natural interest in animals.

2) Develop and strengthen basic skills of observation and investigation that children will use increasingly as they continue their study of science.

3) Build excitement in science that will remain with them throughout their lives.
