Join Springwatch’s Martin Hughes-Games as he follows the dedicated and inspirational individuals working to save some very special babies, nature’s miracle babies, who are the lifeline to preserving some of our planet’s most critically vulnerable species.
There’s great hope for the future of the rarest cat in the world, the Amur leopard. With only 35 left in the wild, the arrival of a litter of tiny cubs could help save this species from extinction. There’s a rollercoaster of emotions following the exhausting vigil of one very special giant, an Indian one horned rhino, who has her keepers on tenterhooks for days as she tries to deliver a baby as big as a man. And heartbreak turns into hard work for a dedicated team at Jersey Zoo. They have to become surrogate parents to a litter of tiny baby pied Tamarins, the rarest primate in South America, after they’re attacked by their mother. But will they make it through?
Nature's Miracle Babies is an intimate, yet ultimately uplifting series that touches all our emotions.

Without affecting in any way the five star ratings there is however one caveat that I would like to give - this show is not appropriate for young children, for two reasons: sex and violence. If you watch it in family, your young children can be treated to some very explicit images of copulating pandas and then even more torrid sex scene between gorillas... Even worse, in episode three there are some extremely shocking images of tasmanian devils suffering from a form of very virulent (and contagious!) cancer, which disfigures them HORRIBLY! The images of a baby tamarin mutilated by its mother are also very tough...Read more ›
It is extremely interesting - funny, uplifting, heart-rending, heart-warming and with a huge "AH" factor. It could have been called Nature's Gorgeous Babies.
My only criticism is that there is hardly any information about the episodes.
However, highly recommended.
I have to disagree with one of the other reviewers ('Maciej'), who mentions 'explicit' and 'torrid' sex scenes, also stating that (partly) for this reason the programme is not appropriate for young children. The series can be upsetting at times, though no more so than any other nature programme, and, unlike many of these, at least we don't actually see any violence or killing taking place. However, the 'sex scenes' are not 'explicit' or 'torrid' at all. The one involving gorillas is actually quite amusing and endearing, and surely it's better for children to be introduced to the whole idea of the dreaded 's-e-x' in its natural context rather than via the popular media, playground gossip or an awkward 'facts of life' lecture from embarrassed parents.
In short, this is a wonderful series, if a little upsetting at times, and thoroughly deserving of 5 stars.
