Meet the Animal Adventure Club!
If there’s a wild animal in trouble, the Animal Adventure Club is here to help! Isla, Buzz, Gracie and new girl Lexi love animals, and they love helping the rangers at their local nature reserve! Read on to meet the team, and find out all about their first adventure!
Isla is the de facto leader of the Animal Adventure Club. She’s positive, sensible and fair, and has a gentle sense of humour that helps lighten the mood when things get difficult. She is calm, quiet and has a real knack for looking after animals. Perhaps she gets it from her mum, who is a nurse at the local health centre.
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!
