Nick News is diving into the Amazon River.
The Nickelodeon series, hosted by award-winning journalist Linda Ellerbee, is taking six kids from diverse backgrounds and different parts of the United States on a seven-day boat trip down the Amazon and through the rainforest.
Nick will present Nick News Adventure: Rollin' Down the River: Kids Explore the Amazon Sunday, Aug. 29 at 8:30 p.m. (EST/PST).
"More than one-half of the world's plants, animals and insects and one-fifth of the world's freshwater can be found in the Amazon," Ellerbee said in a prepared statement. "This is an important show that highlights a serious issue. Although it's not about war or human lives lost, it is about losing or saving a planet."
