Leo The Wildlife Ranger is an award-winning animated series for young children that takes the show’s main characters – Junior Rangers Leo, Katie and their lovable puppy Hero – on fun and educational nature adventures around the world. In each episode, kids will learn fun facts and information about different wildlife and nature conservation. While enjoying the show, children will also begin to share Leo and Katie’s love for nature and animals, and come to respect their natural homes in the environment.
In his debut year, Leo The Wildlife Ranger won Best Preschool Program in the Asian TV Awards, while also receiving nomination for Best 3D Animation. To date, Leo continues to make his mark internationally in countries such as the United States, Canada, Australia, Korea and China, amongst others, and is currently on Amazon Prime with above 4- star ratings.
Leo is a nature-loving and upbeat 8 year-old who – along with his computer-wiz sister Katie, their loyal pooch Hero, and the stalwart Ranger Rocky – explores the wondrous animals and environments the world has to offer, with healthy lessons about conservation and protecting the planet. Each episode of Leo the Wildlife Ranger comprises of three different segments (available to watch on YouTube): short episodes (minisodes), Ranger Diaries, and Hero’s Mini-Missions. These segments take your pre-schooler (age 3+) on adventures around the world to learn about animals, the environment, conservation, and more.
Each minisode is about 5 minutes long and is essentially a condensed version of the full episode. Here is a minisode that introduces viewers to one of the fastest animal in the world:
In each Ranger Diary, Leo educates kids about another exciting and unique animal, like this one about the Estuarine Crocodile:
And on Hero’s Mini Missions, Leo and Katie send their pup out to search for new homes for our wildlife friends:
