Powerful animal documentaries to make your heart melt

If you like animal documentaries, RTD is the place for you. From pandas and polar bears to Amur leopards and tigers, you’ll find a furry face to make you smile. RTD’s animal documentaries also show you how some endangered animals are coping, including baby harp seals on the ice fields of the White Sea and whales off the coast of the Faroe Islands. You’ll also meet some animals that are helping in some unusual places, including giant African rats making former war zones safe again and huskies aiding Russia’s Arctic Regiment. Or, take a step into the past and see how shepherds still raise sheep in Dagestan and reindeer in Yakutia.
