This Weekend "The Wildlife Docs" Series Premieres and "Sea Rescue" Returns on ABC Stations Across the Country

by Staff

From land to sea two TV shows, The Wildlife Docs and Sea Rescue take you behind the scenes with SeaWorld and Busch Gardens animal experts and rescuers. Both shows premiere this weekend on most ABC stations across the country.

The Wildlife Docs

The Wildlife Docs is a brand-new TV series that takes you along with an elite team of veterinarians, technicians and trainers as they care for the more than 12,000 exotic animals that live in Busch Gardens Tampa. You’ll get an up-close look at the ground-breaking medical procedures and enriching care that are just part of a day’s work for this dedicated group.

In the series premiere viewers will be treated to something rare: three Malayan tiger cubs are born. Their arrival is an encouraging sign of progress in an effort to start a new bloodline for this critically endangered species. The excitement is short-lived, however when it is discovered one of the cubs has a potentially life-threatening condition.

Sea Rescue

Sea Rescue with Sam Champion returns for a third season to tell the stories of marine animal rescue, rehabilitation and return by the SeaWorld rescue team and its partners. The show has been seen by more than 86 million viewers in its first two seasons.

On the season premiere Florida police respond to a report of a body in the water and are surprised to discover it’s a sea turtle in need of help. Then a baby dolphin is tangled in fishing gear in Texas and his mother won’t leave his side.
