At the heart of this heartwarming family series lies the work of animal specialists with their adopted animal babies.
Sub-Saharan Africa is home to a diverse range of land and sea wildlife. Often young animals, big or small need special attention which they receive from their caring and loving caretakers. In this series, we will meet Kerry who cares for Lindi, a one-eyed lion cub. Having one eye does not restrict Lindi from been a playful and energetic lion cub. We meet Cara who took in two abandoned and in bad condition baby warthogs, Shatsi and Shalanti. Raising and rehabilitating these two sisters takes time and patience which Cara has plenty of. We meet Wanda who’s 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. Having discovered baby Samrec on the ground away from the nest she quickly removed him from the unbroken shell and warmed him up. Baby Samrec is now doing well under the care of Granny Penquin. Frank and his Cheetah cub, Shakira have a special bond and Shakira is not shy to show her affection for Frank. Forming a bond with a wild animal is rare but when it happens it is extraordinary.
