Nature's Miracle Orphans | Episode 1 | Second Chances

Season 34 Episode 1 | 53m 10s

Over the past few years, great strides have been made in understanding how to rescue and rehabilitate orphaned wildlife. But as this documentary shows, success often comes down to the efforts of individuals at animal rescue centers around the world who devote their lives to saving these vulnerable creatures, getting them back on their feet and, hopefully, releasing them back into the wild.
