Caring for the Endangered

Caring for the Endangered

When Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom’s new series, Protecting the Wild, premieres in 2023, viewers will hear the stories of some of the most vulnerable animals in the United States — endangered species. Protecting the Wild will feature endangered species such as the Florida panther and the California condor, showcasing the collaboration of government agencies, wildlife organizations and conservationists to help sustain their populations.

Saving the Florida Panther

The Florida panther once roamed from Florida to Louisiana to Arkansas. Today, the endangered species can only be found in southern Florida swamplands. With fewer than 200 remaining, conservationists are finding unique ways for these big cats and humans to live in harmony, including building wildlife crossings that allow them to safely maneuver under or over major highways.

Where’s Wild Kingdom?

The Wild Kingdom crew recently traveled to North Carolina and Washington to film Protecting the Wild episodes on red wolves, black bears and beavers.
