Buzz Campbell

Buzz is loyal and caring, and wants to be a vet when he grows up. He’s affectionate, supportive and fun but always quite sensible. He’s a stickler for the rules.Animal Adventure Club - Buzz

Lexi Budge

Lexi is new to the area and desperately trying to fit in, but she definitely wants to be the leader, which doesn’t go down too well with the rest of the team. She’s only trying to impress them through! She has a secret talent for drawing, which comes in handy for making animal fact sheets!Animal Adventure Club - Lexi
