Sea Rescue and The Wildlife Docs are new this Weekend

by Staff

Be sure to catch new episodes of the Emmy-nominated Sea Rescue and The Wildlife Docs this weekend!

On Sea Rescue, a gray seal is tangled up in a fishing net on a remote beach on Long Island, N.Y., but a rescue team from The Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation is there to help. Also, volunteers on a routine turtle patrol discover a rare leatherback hatchling stuck at the bottom of a nest with a life-threatening fold in its shell.

On The Wildlife Docs, we’ll visit with four members of Busch Gardens’ Animal Ambassador team: a sweet-faced lemur, Harry the two-toed sloth, an echidna and finally Pinky the flamingo. These animals play an important role at the park as they help educate the public about wildlife conservation.

Sea Rescue and The Wildlife Docs air nationally on ABC on Saturday mornings during “Litton’s Weekend Adventure” and are among the most popular Saturday morning shows.

They are part of the #1 rated block on Saturday mornings and are consistently rated #1 in the top ten U.S. markets including the four largest: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Philadelphia. Currently in its third season, Sea Rescue has been seen by more than 120 million viewers.
