The Kratts go back in time to visit extinct animals

Part 1: Go Dodo Go
After lamenting the extinction of different animals in recent history and how they’ll never get to adventure with them, Aviva unveils her greatest invention yet – a time trampoline! The Wild Kratts jump back to the time of the extinct dodo bird, but once there, they run into Gourmand’s ancestor, who has decided dodos are definitely on the menu! Once again, it’s Wild Kratts to the rescue!

Learning Goals: Extinction – animals can go extinct and disappear from the world forever due to a number of reasons, such as habitat loss and over-hunting.

Featured Animals: Dodo

Part 2: Tasmanian Tiger

 After visiting the dodos, the Wild Kratts travel to another time period to visit another extinct animal – the Tasmanian tiger! Their trip doesn’t go as planned, however, and they must save the Tasmanian tigers from Dabio and Donita’s ancestors, while also saving themselves from Zach, who wants to trap them in the past forever!
