The series is aimed at children aged six to nine and is designed to empower kids and their families in the face of growing anxiety over the state of the planet. In addition to the series, 9 Story and Earth Rangers are working on a serialised podcast.

Mark Steinberg (Hotel Transylvania, Big Blue, Numb Chucks) is on board as head writer on the series, with Nelu Handa (Run the Burbs, Baroness von Sketch Show, Odd Squad) attached as story consultant. Development is being led by 9 Story’s VP of development Karen Fowler.

“I am a big believer in the Earth Rangers mission to create new generations of conservationists,” said 9 Story president and CEO Vince Commisso, who is also an Earth Rangers board member.

“We have a responsibility to future generations to fix what is happening with our planet. We also know from our experience working on [animated series] Wild Kratts over the last decade that kids are inherently passionate about the environment from an early age. Our goal with this partnership is to reach a slightly older audience and help maintain this passion for animals and the environment.”
