Baby Planet

ANIMAL PLANET – Thursdays from 11 September, 9.30pm

Meet newborn, orphaned and injured baby animals all in need of care, and the people responsible for their rescue and future welfare. Baby Planet includes stories from ‘surrogate’ mothers who have adopted pets who have lost their mothers. In the first episode, Maternal Instinct, viewers get to meet an Australian star in the form of a baby kangaroo, who was rejected by his mother so she could carry on breeding.
