About Splash and Bubbles
Splash, Bubbles and their best friends Dunk and Ripple go on epic adventures, discovering marine biology and oceanography as they meet all kinds of “citizens of the sea.” With lots of play, comedy and music, these Reeftown Rangers explore the one big ocean we all share.
Splash and Bubbles’ Reeftown Rangers are kids, parents, caregivers and educators who are committed to learning about and protecting the ocean and other marine environments. They are curious about the incredible diversity of marine life and ocean phenomena, as well as the essential role the ocean plays in the well-being of our planet, and ourselves. Reeftown Rangers know that we all must take care of precious water resources, whether we live on the coast, near a large or small body of water, or even far inland.
