Michaela’s Wild Challenge

Michaela’s Wild Challenge Weekdays, 5:30pm

Double BAFTA award-winning Michaela’s Wild Challenge gives viewers a unique way of exploring the world’s wildlife. It’s dangerous, ingenious and original – playing weekdays at 5:30pm on TVNZ Family on TVNZ 6.

Hosted by UK celebrity Michaela Strachan, Michaela’s Wild Challenge is intended to be both educational and entertaining, covering the conservation and research efforts of endangered and threatened species, and what people around the world are doing to help them.
Each episode, Michaela and her team of two undertake challenges and perform wildlife-related dares. From kissing one of the biggest fish in the world on the lips, to trying to out-smart the cleverest birds in the world – there is never a dull moment.

Over the course of the series, Michaela and her team will be challenged to hand-feed sharks underwater, perform an ultra-sound on a captive manatee, swim with dolphins, release a crocodile into the everglades and release a tiger shark in the Bahamas. They’ll be asked to find an animal for each letter of the alphabet in the Namibian desert, hunt for different fish in the sea of the Maldives, and bottle feed and bathe a baby baboon.

The challenges are varied, and wildly entertaining.

Those who love Wild Thing – I Love You will enjoy another wildlife adventure series in Michaela’s Wild Challenge on TVNZ Family.
