My oldest son loves animals and has since he was very little. When he started school all of his report cards would have comments on his knowledge of animals. I believe this is thanks to the Kratt Brothers. This Canadian duo and their animal adventures were a big part of my sons daily routine. I am happy that so many years later my other children can still enjoy their adventures. Adventures like Wild Kratts Lost at Sea. The Wild Kratts make learning so fun the kids do not even realize they are learning.
WILD KRATTS “Lost at Sea” special airs on PBS KIDS tonight. In the two-episode special, the Kratt brothers will dive under the sea to help kids explore natural science topics. Additionally, families can extend the fun (and learning) through new science games and science videos online and new videos on mobile. The on-air special will be available on DVD starting January 22.

When the miniaturized Kratt bros are swept up and lost in a swath of plankton, they become part of a crowd of fish larvae all headed to the most populated and diverse habitat on Earth — the coral reef. As Aviva and the gang search for them, the lost bros take up residence on the reef alongside a newfound porcupinefish friend, who will hopefully show them how to survive in this fish-eat-fish world until they are rescued. But when Donita shows up searching for a special Sea Crown fit for a fashion queen, the gang must return the favor and rescue their friend.
The Wild Kratts team is on a mission to decode the secret language of one of the smartest creatures on Earth — dolphins! With the help of Aviva’s experimental Dolphin Decoder and two young dolphin tutors, Chris and Martin join a pod and try to speak “dolphinese.” But when their newfound friends are caught in a jam with the dolphins’ only true creature enemy — a hungry shark — the bros are embroiled in a hair-raising rescue mission that tests their new creature language skills.
The one-hour science special premieres on Monday, January 21, on PBS KIDS (check local listings).
Online and on mobile:
A new online science game, “Dolphin Dive,” is the first PBS KIDS online game to include real animal sounds! In the game, players can extend their experience in learning about dolphin communication, as they help the Kratt Brothers use their dolphin Creature Power Suits to reunite lost dolphin babies with their pod. Kids can earn their own dolphin Creature Power Suit and then explore a new Coral Reef Habitat. Players will encounter amazing sea animals, as they swim alongside a sea turtle and shark. “Dolphin Dive” will launch in the coming weeks, joining WILD KRATTS’ collection of popular science games.
PBS Distribution will release WILD KRATTS “Lost at Sea” on DVD on January 22, 2013. Details for the DVD follow:
