Thirteen’s ‘Nature’ to focuses on efforts to rehabilitate rescued wildlife in Guatemala on Jungle Animal Hospital Wed., May 18



“Nature’s” last new show of the season will centers on the work and challenges faced by jungle veterinarian Alejandro Morales, his zoologist girlfriend Anna Bryant, and their group of dedicated staff and volunteers, as they try to rehabilitate and prepare all types of wildlife for a return to the wild in the Guatemalan jungle.

Filmmakers spent a year documenting the work being done at Guatemala’s busiest rescue center so they could follow the challenges faced by the staff, such as Bryant’s efforts to make sure a troop of spider monkeys would finally be ready to go back to the wild after several years of rehabilitation. 

“Jungle Animal Hospital” is scheduled to air 8 p.m. Wed., May 18 on PBS (check local listings). 

After the broadcast, the episode will be available for limited online streaming at www.pbs.org/nature.
