Wild City: River World
Meet the first ever brood of otter pups to be born and raised in UNESCO World Heritage site the Singapore Botanic Gardens. And six of the most precious and endangered Lesser Whistling Ducklings.
Shot over seven months using state-of-the-art natural history techniques and equipment, this latest instalment of the award-winning Wild City series takes you on a journey down the rivers and lakes of Singapore through the eyes of the young in the wild.
With exclusive access to the otter family, we follow many firsts for the pups – from swimming lesson to hunting their catch. We also capture the ultimate display of a mother’s love in the duck family as they faced down the fury of Mother Nature.
Will these younglings be able to make it to adulthood?
Joining the cast of water babies are huge river monsters battling for dominance; strange night-time creatures birthing hundreds of eggs at a time; and the most evolved of tiny creatures that can walk on water.
