Plot Synopsis[]

When the Planeteers come home with an orphaned wolf pup, Gaia tells them they should take it and the other animals they've "adopted" so far back to where they belong. However, this turns out to be not an easy task, due to the habitats being destroyed by the eco-villains and other polluters.

Planeteer Alerts[]

First Planeteer Alert

Gaia: As people take up more land for their own use, less is left for plants and animals.
Linka: Every day, over 100 species become extinct.
Wheeler: You can help stop this loss. Don't buy exotic animals taken from the wild.
Gi: That way, poachers will have no reason to capture them.
Ma-Ti: And urge your parents and friends to support laws, like the U.S. Endangered Species Act, that protects our natural treasures.
All: The power is yours!

Second Planeteer Alert

Captain Planet: Technology is a good thing when used wisely. Still, some technologies cause pollution.
Gaia: But engineers and scientists are developing cleaner ways of doing things, such as alternative energy sources that pollute less, and reusable and recyclable products.
Linka: If you have a choice between a product made from recycled material...
Kwame: And one that is not, buy recycled.
Captain Planet: Support green technology. The power is yours!
