This is where you put ideas for Wild Kratts episodes that take place in Europe.
Don't expect much to be here. Europe isn't the most spacious of places. And don't forget to cite your sources~

"So Jimmy, where are we going next?" Chris asked, leaning over the pilot's shoulder as the Tourtuga soared over the Atlantic Ocean. "The dense rainforests in South America? The deserts of Asia or Australia? The wide open plains of--"
"Europe!" Jimmy said, cutting him off.
Martin's face morphed into a disappointed frown. "Why are we going to Europe? There isn't much wildlife there."
"Hey," Koki said, sticking her head into the room. "You could find a falcon in the city, so how hard could it be to find something there?"
"It's Europe!" Chris protested, "and there are lots of other places that we haven't gone yet!"
"Take it as a challenge then," Aviva said, walking into the room. "You never know, it might be worth it!"
"You too?" Martin asked, groaning. "But if it's a challenge you want, then we accept. C'mon Chris, let's go find some wildlife!"
Let me just say that this is a complete (WIP) and I don't collaborate well with others. I just can't. Nobody please edit (unless otherwise stated) or delete this...and if you do, I have it saved on my computer and usually write from there, then paste the changes over to here, so I can just post it again. ~ ^^ Also, I tend to commentate a lot, mainly explanations, but it's there, and it's intrusive.
[[FOR THE SAKE OF USING PROPER LANGUAGE, I WON'T SAY ANYTHING PROFANE HERE AND JUST KEEP IT IN MY MIND LIKE NORMAL, BUT FOR THE LOVE OF WHATEVER YOU HOLD DEAR, WILL YOU PLEASE JUST STOP BEING BLIND AND READ WHAT I WROTE? PLEASE. JUST PLEASE DON'T DELETE THIS. I CAN ALWAYS BRING IT BACK IF YOU DO, BUT IT'S A HASSLE AND A WASTE OF TIME. HOMEWORK TIME; STUDY TIME. I HAVE TO MAINTAIN PROPER A's AND A-'s IN SCHOOL AND IS YOU DON'T LET ME USE MY TIME PROPERLY, THEN PLEASE KNOW THAT I '''WILL''' BE BLAMING YOU FOR THOSE FAULTS. Thank you.]] (-Let's ignore for a moment that Puffins are eaten on Iceland...and do remember that this is done in moderation.-) I have no idea if I'm using present or past tense...I'll probably end up switching between both...but it should be readable. Beware, I am a detailer.
Date: Post August 15 (end of hunting season) while the Puffins are leaving Iceland to go live off in the waters.
Setting: Heimaey Island, Iceland. (Pronounced, in my phonetics, hA-mah-A, in which capital letters are pronounced as they're called in the English alphabet. Stress on the first syllable. Hey, studying their pronunciation is a bit tricky, but it's worth it.)
The team arrives in a boat from Rekjavík (They couldn't land the Tourtuga on Heimaey itself. (Too small.)) just in time to watch the young puffins, pufflings, start migrate to live a life on the water. Whilst watching, they notice that some of the birds are falling into the streets, confused by the street lights. Worried, they run over to help it when they notice a young child already bringing the puffin deeper into the town so that they can find a vet. He or she is stopped by the brothers, and they ask what he's/she's doing. After a quick explanation that he's/she's part of the Puffin Patrol, and what that is, someone (the best doctor of the crew) offers to do the job instead and the child agrees...after some explaining as to who the Wild Kratts are. In the morning, the kid and the Kratts head down to the beach, where they release the puffling (now named...something) along with many others, rescued by other of the island's Icelanders...although it doesn't seem to want to leave, after some coaxing it finally flies off...
Cue evil villain.
After the initial relief of the puffling's departure, worry returns with the arrival of a black ship that starts to suck up the puffins, by way of a huge tube. (Team Rocket, anyone? I don't have a better idea, but if you do, leave it here... IDEA LIST:...) Confused, the child begs the Wild Kratts to do something and Aviva uses Martin's backpack (because that thing is magic...in the Koalaballoon episode) to take out a portable creature power disk creator thingy and she quickly makes a disk with everything that they know about them, which they learned through the course of the episode which I did not list because this only occurred to me right now. (But yeah, while they were evaluating the puffin's health and possibly on the way over to Heimaey, they learned stuff about puffins.) Giving both of the Wild Kratts a copy of the disk, they quickly look around for a puffin...only to find that named puffin on the kid's (who also has a name...but I dunno what it is yet. Luckily, the name list is limited, so I'll be able to get something in the future. Gender is important to the surname.) head. Apparently he (the puffin's male) hadn't left and had just come back...and is very friendly to his Icelandic savior...for reasons. Taking the opportunity to activate their creature power suits (which they conveniently had on or something) they flap their new found wings furiously up into the sky after the ship.
Flying in through an open window (smart, Zach, smart), they hide in a corner and watch as the puffins are fit with robot suits. They overhear Zach's plan to make them work for him as fishers, and decide (obviously) that he needed to be stopped. (More on the fisher plan: Apparently Zach did some research and learned that puffins can hold an abnormally large number of fish in their beaks. Yeah.) Using their still grey with early age puffin suits, they flap further in, undetected, and destroy the wiring of the guard robots before getting to the release button and pressing it. It's only when they open up the back door that Zach notices this, and by the time he turns around and gets up from his chair, it's too late. The Wild Kratts give him a good-bye and fly out the door with the others, only to have Zach shout his signature, “Curse you, Wild Rats!” Or whatever it is, but I think it's that.
Finally, it's time for the resolution. They, all six of them, the crew and the child (who I still have to name), watch as the last of the puffins fly off into the afternoon horizon. And then...yeah...I think that's it.
