The Polos

Marco

Marco is a passionate explorer and a natural leader. He’s confident, enthusiastic, and inclusive, inspiring the Polos to look for new experiences and take on new challenges. He’s likeable, trustworthy, and kind, a person the other Polos can count on. An environmentalist, Marco is endlessly curious about the natural world.

Willow

Willow is an engineering genius – she built the PoloMobile after all. She’s girly and not afraid to take charge. She’s constantly designing gadgets that help the Polos on their adventures – from her speed tracker to her zebra stripe matcher, she gives the Polos ways to measure, evaluate, and illuminate the world around them.

Chester

Chester knows a lot of stuff – how frogs metamorphose, what a marsupial is, why bats echolocate – and he loves sharing it with the other Polos. He enjoys getting the right answers to all of the Polos’ questions, from his PoloPad, as they explore. He’s an adventurer at heart, totally willing to ride a zipline or dive to the midnight zone.

Gorby

Gorby is a big guy with a big heart and an eye for detail. He notices things – a hidden bird’s nest, the patterns on a butterfly’s wings, the colors in Neptune’s rings – that can lead the other Polos to new discoveries about the world around them. He’s not afraid to ask a silly question or laugh at himself. Also, he’s a hugger.

Lily

Lily is a star athlete, not just physically but mentally. She’s energetic and physical – running, jumping, racing cheetahs. But she’s also got the persistence and self-discipline of a champion – she’s always willing to try hard, go farther and not give up. She may be little but she’s mighty.

Nash

Nash is a two-year-old wild child. He speaks just a few words at a time and has a little trouble with his “r’s” but he can make himself heard in the group. He’s playful and loves getting into things which means he often is the first to discover something unusual – from T-Rex fossil footprints to dung beetles rolling their balls of poop.
