NAT GEO WILD CELEBRATES MOTHER'S DAY BY HIGHLIGHTING THE AMAZING MOMS OF THE ANIMAL KINGDOM

Premieres Include a Special Airing of Safari Live at 9 AM ET and an Adorable Three-Part Special Animal Moms at 8 PM ET on Sunday, May 14, on Nat Geo WILD

(WASHINGTON, D.C. - May 1, 2017) Nat Geo WILD celebrates Mother's Day with a day of programming that showcases the animal kingdom's most amazing moms. Tune in Sunday, May 14, to discover the heartwarming stories of how our planet's wild animals raise their young - from a mother sheep comforting her crying lamb to a lioness guarding her cubs in the middle of the African wilderness - with a lineup of adorable programming suitable for the entire family. You may be surprised at how similar the parental styles of the natural world are to our own! For more information, visit our press website at natgeotvpressroom.com or follow us on Twitter using @NGC_PR.

The celebration begins with a morning alongside the animal moms of the African wilderness in a special airing of Nat Geo WILD's hit series Safari Live from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. ET. Safari Live gives you a front-row seat to an actual safari as our guides get you up close and personal with some of Africa's most iconic species - such as lions, leopards, elephants, giraffes and more - in real time. Viewers can interact with the guides in real time on Twitter using #safarilive.

Later, we reveal the secrets behind moms in the wild in a three-part special, Animal Moms, beginning at 8 p.m. ET. This charming program explores the ways in which animal mothers rear their young, from the moment of birth to the "terrible twos" and beyond. Each episode features a mix of science, fascinating stories and heartwarming moments to show how animal mothers devote their lives to their babies. Discover the surprising realities behind the greatest bond in the animal kingdom: motherhood.

Mother's Day Premieres Include:

Safari Live: Mother's Day Special Premieres Sunday, May 14, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. ET Safari Live is back with a special broadcast dedicated to the awesome animal mothers of the African wilderness. Not only are the guides giving you a front-row seat to safari rides in South Africa's famous Kruger National Park, but they are also live broadcasting from the iconic Maasai Mara to showcase its incredible wildlife - such as herds of elephants, packs of endangered wild dogs, prides of lions, cheetahs, leopards and hyenas, among many others. It's a Safari Live first you won't want to miss!

Animal Moms: Happy Birthday! Premieres Sunday, May 14, at 8 p.m. ET Discover the incredible stories of the mothers of the animal kingdom. We begin with the heartwarming moments immediately following birth, when animal moms establish their magical bonds with their newborns as they welcome them into the world. From their youngsters' first steps to their first meals, see how the animal mothers' maternal instincts kick in to keep their young safe, fed and healthy.

Animal Moms: Terrible Twos Premieres Sunday, May 14, at 9 p.m. ET Explore how animal moms cope when their youngsters grow from infants to toddlers. Just like for human babies, play time is extremely important for these baby animals, and their animal moms have their work cut out for them. From pygmy goats learning just how high they can climb to baby lambs learning how to use their voices, these adorable stories show just how similar animals are to us. Discover animal moms' tactics for tackling tantrums, the way they handle bullies and their ingenious methods for child care.

Animal Moms: Home Schooled Premieres Sunday, May 14, at 10 p.m. ET Just like human babies, animal babies learn by mimicking their mothers.
