Planeteer Alerts[]

First Planeteer Alert

Gi: Rhinos may not be the cutest animals in the world, but they are part of nature's rich diversity.
Kwame: To kill an endangered animal just for its horn or skin is not only wrong, but illegal.
Ma-Ti: Unfortunately some places in the world are not enforcing the law, and rhinos continue to be hunted toward extinction.
Linka: So please, do not buy rhino or any other endangered animal products. Remember!
All: The power is yours!

Second Planeteer Alert

Ma-Ti: Sustainable industries are our best hope for the future.
Wheeler: Overgrazing can destroy the land.
Linka: But sustainable ranching techniques help preserve it.
Kwame: Clear-cutting old-growth forest destroys an irreplaceable resource.
Gi: But selective logging preserves the environment and future jobs!
Gaia: So whether it's fishing, farming and other big businesses or simply recycling in your home, we must all do our part.
All: The power is yours!

Significant Moments and Facts[]

  • Gi: You'd better take it easy, Wheeler. This is not the kind of Chinese food you're used to eating.
    Wheeler: What do you mean? This stuff's great!
    Gi: Really? I didn't know you liked duck feet soup and squid in its own ink.
    Wheeler: (eyes bulge out and starts to cough) Suddenly, I don't feel so good...
  • Mabu: Come! In celebration, I've prepared a special South African dish!
    Wheeler: Smells great, Mabu! And I've finally gotten my appetite back! (starts eating the food) Mmmm! I LOVE pasta!
    Mabu: Uh... what pasta? It is grub worm stew. (the other Planeteers are shocked and look at Wheeler in morbid fascination as he continues to eat until he cleaned off his plate)
    Kwame: Do you think we should tell Wheeler?
    Everyone: ... NAAAAAH! (laugh)
