We will get an intimate look at the daily routine of raising wildlife and experience exhilarating friendships between man and beast.
Sub-Saharan Africa is home to a diverse range of land and sea wildlife. Meerkats, turtles, caracals, cape grys boks, kudus, wild dogs, zebras, elephants, and chimpanzees are but a few. But often the young animals, big and small, become victims of the wild and need special care and attention. These dedicated and loving caretakers have committed themselves to providing this care. They get up in the middle of the night to feed their foster babies and make sure they are safe and warm. This series shows what it takes to care for these wild animals, the challenges the caretakers face and the obstacles their wildlife counter-parts have to overcome. We will show you just how diverse the wildlife is in Africa and how young animals are taken care of and protected in, Raising Wildlife.
We introduce you to Vivian who cares for Lindi, a one-eyed lion cub. Having one eye does not restrict Lindi from being playful and energetic. We also encounter Cara who took in two abandoned baby warthogs, Shatsi and Shalanti, who were in extremely bad conditions. Raising and rehabilitating these two sisters took time and patience which Cara had plenty of. Meet Wanda whose love for penguins has earned her the nickname, ‘Granny Penguin’. Wanda’s latest effort to save a hatchling did not fall short of her dedication. These and many other wildlife nannies have dedicated their lives to helping abandoned animals in need.
