Growing up... Hyena:

Zie hoe een hyena-jong opgroeit bij mensenouders, van de eerste dag van zijn leven, als hij nog klein en kwetsbaar is, tot het moment dat hij voor zichzelf kan zorgen.

Følg en hyæneunges liv fra dens første skrøbelige start, til den er stor nok til at tage vare på sig selv. Og se, hvordan den tilpasser sig efter sin "barndom" hos os mennesker.

I finally caught this programme on TV here.  Unfortunately I missed the first half, but what I did see was awesome.  Thanks for posting this one Katja :-)  I will try to catch the first half next time.

Tabs you have a valied point but its only there for them to get and insight into the animals behaivour and learn about the animals plus if younger children see some celebs getting involved then it might compele them to get involved it was good because i learnt alot from it I know its a reality show but it was a good watch i was addicted!

Safari School

BBC2 Mon 22 Jan, 6:00 pm - 6:30 pm GMT

Reality show, presented by Charlotte Uhlenbroek, in which eight celebrities train as rangers at Shamwari Game Reserve in South Africa. For four weeks, they compete to make the grade under the critical eye of
two expert Instructors, and each week the two worst
performers face a head-to-head challenge to keep their
place on the course. As the celebrities move in to the
remote lodge where they'll be living and get their
first taste of how close they'll get to wild animals

I dislike 'reality shows' and this one makes me very uncomfortable!

Whilst we are all quite happy to be 'entertained' by the wildlife, when we go on safari (and pay our dues for conservation) I cannot see how this programme adds to conservation/preservation of the wildliufe in Africa - or any other continent.

If the 'celebrity contestants' in this show were really interested in conservation they would put some of their inflated salaries/royalties into genuine conservation efforts rather than taking part in these ridiculous 'Reality Shows' for their own grandisement and personal profit.
