Wildlife SOS



Wildlife SOS is a long-running documentary series presented by Simon Cowell MBE and featuring the work of the Wildlife Aid Foundation and its partner wildlife charities in Britain and around the world. Wildlife SOS was first broadcast in 1997 on Channel Five, and since then has run continuously on Discovery Channel’s Animal Planet. It has also been co-produced by ITV Meridian and ITV London.

What started as a modest fly-on-the-wall documentary about life at the Foundation’s Leatherhead veterinary hospital now covers a wide range of environmental and animal-welfare issues world-wide. It quickly became one of the most popular shows on Animal Planet, with millions of viewers internationally.

Wildlife SOS Series 10 screened in 2012 and 2013, with the focus on tackling the most challenging situations, ranging from the plight of endangered British wildlife species to the ongoing problems of animal cruelty and habitat destruction in places as far afield as Russia, southeast Asia, and central and southern Africa.

Series 10 and previous series of Wildlife SOS are still being screened regularly on Discovery Channel Animal Planet and other satellite/cable TV networks in the UK and around the world but at the present time there are no plans for further TV episodes to be commissioned. However, we are still filming our work and that of our partner organisations, and our work can be found on our You Tube page:
