[Voiceover] Ask yourself this question.The next time you see a corner of the world untouched by man, will we humans be better off if we save some of what was here before we came? Should we try to preserve this wildlife? Can it be saved through conservation methods? The answer is, it must.
If we do, we can ensure for those who follow us that there will always be a Wild Kingdom.

It was such a unique idea, producing a show called Wild Kingdom, teaching people about protecting and preserving our national forests and prairies and wild lands.

Our wildlife now more than ever needs conservation.

With the many organizations that are helping to save wildlife all around the United States.

Hi, I'm Peter Gros. I am pleased to announce that Wild Kingdom is back.

What we hope to be showing you on the new Wild Kingdom is some of the successes.

There were less than a thousand bison at one point. What are the numbers now?

About 65,000 head of bison.

He was a scientific breakthrough - the first ever wolf born from artificial insemination for Mexican wolves.

There's no greater feeling than to get an animal healthy and to let it go back into a wild area such as this, and we should be doing everything we can to protect.

I can see it working and I think that's what we need.

you won't believe the places we're going to take you...

and the wildlife you're going to see.

We're getting you behind the scenes.

Prepare to be amazed.

Things are going to get wild.

The more research we do, the more we know, the better we can make decisions in terms of conservation in the wild.

[Voiceover] With the giant strides of scientists and conservationists and the support of people like yourself, future generations will continue to enjoy the Wild Kingdom.

So join us for the adventure on the new Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom Protecting the Wild.
