See wildlife like never before in these exciting new series from Animal Planet.
Every day, thousands of different animals are being moved around the globe on our roads, ferries, and planes. But flying a flock of Gentoo penguins all the way from New Zealand to Birmingham’s National Sea Life Centre requires a high-tech, custom-built transport crate costing £40,000. With refrigeration, air filtering and even seatbelts, the ‘penguin hotel’ must keep the birds in peak physical condition during their 12,500 mile journey.
Watch Penguins On A Plane: Great Animal Moves. The show premiered last October 26 and will air Mondays at 9pm. Follow the expert handlers entrusted with transporting some of the world’s most precious and challenging cargo safely to their destinations.
India’s Gir National Park is the last refuge of the endangered Asiatic lions, but is also the home of a unique breed of lionesses. Meet the gutsy and resolute female foresters zealously guarding these lions in The Lion Queens of India, Watch some of the most courageous, skillful and remarkably-dedicated girls do everything they can for the welfare of these forests – rescuing a lion stuck in an open well, healing a badly-injured lioness with three little cubs in the middle of the night, retrieving a wayward leopard from a farmer’s house, and catching and releasing a deadly Russell’s viper. It’s all in a day’s work.
