Animal Planet to let viewers spend a week with big cats for World Animal Day

Animal Planet has dedicated an entire week to celebrate World Animal Day, which is on October 4. Starting from October 2, ‘Action Big Cat Week’, will be on till October 6 and will portray the lives of the stealthiest predators on the planet. Besides, viewers will also get to know the steps taken to conserve them from the possible threat of extinction.

‘Action Big Cat Week’ will be aired at 8 pm. Animal Planet will showcase these beasts as they hunt prey, battle threats and develop relationships in some of the most dangerous communities in the world.

During the week, the channel will explore the magnificent and mysterious cats of Sri Lanka in ‘Leopard Hunters’, apart from programmes like ‘Tiger Zero’, ‘Return of the Cheetah’ and ‘Alphonse Roy’s Great Cats of India’. Through these programmes, the channel will highlight the threats faced by the great Indian cats as their numbers dwindle.

‘Tiger Zero’ an hour-long programme, which is going to be aired on October 2, will reveal what is behind India’s second tiger crisis. The programme couldn’t be more timely as wildlife organisations have warned that tigers in India have reached dangerously low numbers.

‘Return of the Cheetah’, which will be aired on October 3, will highlight the efforts of wildlife expert Peter Gros to safeguard the world’s fastest sprinter at the Cheetah conservation fund in Namibia.

‘Alphonse Roy’s Great Cats of India’ (October 4) will showcase one of India’s leading wildlife cameramen, Alphonse Roy’s skills of capturing definitive documentary portraits of all of India's four great cats – lion, tiger, leopard and the snow leopard.

Through ‘Natural World: Leopard Hunters’ (October 5), the channel will present the intimate story of the lives of Sri Lanka’s top predators, including the birth of tiny cubs and fights with sloth bears. The channel will conclude the special week with ‘Wildlife Specials: Lion – Spy in the Den’.
