The Hop To It team is proud to announce our latest children series, Animal Rescue Adventures, has been awarded funding by the CMF Export Fund.
Animal Rescue Adventures
This uplifting aspirational documentary series for kids in Grade 1 to 3 follows authentic animal-loving sisters Sky Lily (12) and Raina (14), as they travel around Ontario volunteering at different animal rescue centers and sanctuaries.
They share unique behind the scenes access and stories of rescued animals from Turtles to Owls to Rat Snakes (more than 200 species of plants and animals are at risk of disappearing from Ontario).
We meet the different individual animals and the incredible passionate people helping them.
Informed by teacher Nicole Classon and wildlife expert and author Rob Laidlaw, we learn fun facts about biodiversity, habitats, food, water, movement, body parts, classification in each episode.
