An upbeat, heartwarming and emotionally engaging series following the plight of some of the world’s most endangered species.
How do you help an elephant overcome his fear of water? How do you teach a sloth how to navigate a forest? Focusing on two locations, Africa and Costa Rica, this observational documentary series meets animals with some extraordinary survival stories, and follows the people determined to help them get back to a life in the wild.
Travelling to rescue centres in both locations, the series encounters characters like Moyo, the baby elephant separated from his mother when he was swept down a river; Mandy the tapir who escaped hunters in Costa Rica; and Kermie and Lockett, the sloths learning about life in the forest thanks to a climbing frame.
Nature’s Miracle Survivors follows these animals – and their human carers – as they work to overcome their fears and learn all they need to survive. It is an emotional journey for the carers too as, after looking after the animals every day since they were rescued, ultimately they know they have to say goodbye.
