Operation Wild

Clare Balding and Steve Leonard join teams of pioneering vets around the world who are using the most cutting-edge techniques, often adapted from human medicine, to save the lives of animals. Examples of ingenuity and dedication include the attempts to treat a moon bear using keyhole brain surgery deep in the jungle, a prosthetic tail designed to help a dolphin swim again, a blind orangutan having microsurgery to try to restore her sight so she can see her daughter again and, in a world first, vets call on a plastic surgeon to give a rhino a skin graft operation.
