Pretend to try the cake – if Churro doesn't get there first!

Sea Rescue Boat
Nova and Aliya are helping to clean up the shores of Heartlake City. They are learning lots about ocean creatures as they sail on the catamaran. Roll the boat over the rubbish to scoop it up into the boat’s net, ready for recycling. Lower the submarine so Nova can collect rubbish from the ocean floor. Then head to the laboratory with Aliya to study water samples. Helping sea life is so rewarding!
Sea Rescue Plane
Can you help Zac with a rescue mission? He has found a beluga whale that is trapped among the rocks and pieces of old wood on the shoreline of Heartlake City beach. Luckily, his mentor, Dia, is overhead piloting the Sea Rescue Plane. Zac gives her a call and they work together to rescue the whale. Once the whale is safely back in the sea, Zac can enjoy a flight in the plane. What an awesome view!
Aliya loves filming news stories for the local community centre. Today she’s brought the Newsroom Van to capture a story about a tree that’s about to be cut down. Help her interview the boy who’s trying to save the owl that lives in the tree. Will they be able to rescue the beautiful bird and its unhatched egg? Film the story, then move to the van’s control room to edit and broadcast the footage.
Sea Rescue Centre
Autumn loves all kinds of animals. And she knows that her friend Leo is always ready for adventure, so she’s invited him to the Sea Rescue Centre. Today the friends are caring for injured otters. Pull up to the dock in the water scooter. Head inside to clean, X-ray and feed the otters. Then help them slide into the rehabilitation area. When they’re well again, the otters can swim back into the ocean.
