Goofs

At the 10:09 mark in the movie it shows a flock of wild Scarlet Macaws (Ara macao) it is indigenous to South American rainforests from Southern Mexico to Brazil in the humid evergreen forests, Since this movie is said to take place around Australia this is an incorrect placement of the Ara Macao.

great educational film with science, nature, animals, problem solving and girl power
16 March 2013 | by judyfb22See all my reviews

I'm learning how to embrace the chaos of life...love it! I was happy that Felix, the lovable nerd actually experiences victory. Bindi Irwin is well cast since in reality, she actually has real relationships with animals. The animals/nature all beautiful--educational and interesting to meet the endangered species, researcher's perspective, the birds, reptiles, sea lion,under water swim scenes, caves, all nicely photographed. Cool the way the animals intuitively help. A couple of funny, yet gratifying revenge scenes. The danger scenes are cool and the innocent coming of age romance is believable. Edmund's fighting parents make us root for him and the poachers fighting/sibling rivalry thing works. Love dancing with Selkie. The young girl scientist/ girl power thing is on point and current.
