KAPOLEI (KHNL) - Kapolei Middle School plays host to a TV show on the National Geographic Channel Thursday.
Animal expert doctor Mike Heithaus of the show "Everyday Explorer" visited the West Oahu students to share the importance of learning and respecting the world around them.
And he brought along some unique friends to help him do the job. The kids were thrillled to see his pot bellied pig, cockatoo and macaw
"That was awesome. I felt like I won the lottery," said Tiffany Van Pelt. "For one thing I learned that people actually care about the animals and that we do have a really big impact on what we do."
