Several episodes of the PBS series Kratts' Creatures were shown to children between the ages of seven through twelve to determine how their perceptions of threatened and endangered species were affected by nature documentaries. Surveys completed by each child before and after the video showed how much they were learning. The series did instill a greater respect and admiration for the animals, but the children remembered little of the information presented.
