Olivia Mokiejewski, French television presenter, journalist and ambassador for the International Fund for Animal Welfare, hosts this four-part series, in which she showcases the baby orphans of endangered species. She also investigates the root causes behind the endangerment of the species, ranging from deforestation and poaching, to climate change.

Spectacular cinematography, engrossing stories and a compassionate host make for solid family viewing, or a good four hours of television for the conservationist and wildlife buff.
