"Hoot" (2006)

Bringing the world to life in your living room is sure to inspire your youngest nature lovers.

"Big Ideas for a Small Planet" (2007)

Older kids will likely get inspired by this series' environmentalist message. After a few episodes, parents can expect kids to chide them for any non-green habits they might have. The series is vehement in its crusade and you won't find much commentary from the "global-warming-is-a-myth" crowd.

"The Wild Thornberrys Movie" (2002)

This animated clan lives the sweet life, traveling the globe to film wildlife documentaries. Kids will love the character of Eliza, who can speak to animals, and her friend, a chimp named Darwin. Based on the Nickelodeon cartoon series of the same name, the show and the movie are affiliated with the National Wildlife Federation so kids will glean nuggets of conservation wisdom while they enjoy the film's laughs.

"Born Free" (1966)
