Nat Geo WILD has two exciting premieres this coming week that you won’t want to miss.
Aloha Vet, premiering Saturday, March 21, is a brand new weekly series that follows veterinarian Dr. Scott Simm as he treats animals in need across the Hawaiian Islands. From exotic sea turtles to domesticated pets in paradise, Dr. Simm cares for everything that flies, swims, slithers or struts. Then, on Sunday, March 22, Nat Geo WILD presents Secret Garden, a beautiful special that looks at the plants and small animals that inhabit our own backyard gardens.
Nat Geo WILD Aloha Vet
Island hop with one of Hawaii’s best-known veterinarians, Dr. Scott Sims, as he treats animals on the go. Unlike most vets, Dr. Sims sees both wild and domestic animals, large and small, and he’s known for doing whatever it takes to give them the care they need. He even built his own private plane to go on house calls. A true adventurer, he’ll perform procedures on beaches, mountaintops, near waterfalls, and even on the tailgate of a truck. Watch Dr. Sims rescue a sea turtle caught in fishing line, save an unconscious horse stuck in a riverbed, and bring sight back to a pig blinded for years. Don’t miss the Aloha Vet as he ventures across the rural islands of Hawaii, doing whatever it takes to help all creatures great and small. Aloha Vet premieres Saturday, March 21 at 9 PM ET/PT.
Nat Geo WILD Secret Garden
Spring is in full bloom! And, Nat Geo WILD is ready to smell the roses from our Secret Garden. Gardens have long epitomized paradise, and many of us derive great pleasure in creating our own Garden of Eden. Our cameras are taking a close look at the plants and small animals that call this home. Today, exotic plants live alongside native animals; an eclectic mix created by generations of gardeners. But many of the creatures that live here go unnoticed, leading secretive and mysterious lives. Small field voles make a network of tunnels under the vegetable plot, a shy weasel hides in the woodpile, and mason bees wallpaper their nest with colorful petals. As summer turns to autumn, small grass snakes hatch within the compost and edible dormice look for apples stored in our garden sheds. Stunning high definition footage and time-lapse photography reveals the vibrant colors of autumn and winter. This is a journey into an unknown and exotic wilderness that is our own back garden.
