Scientists say they are among humankind's closest relatives: the chimpanzees. But despite their intelligence and human-like qualities, we are putting chimpanzees in danger of extinction. Doc Nielsen visits a sanctuary in Kenya that serves as a home for rescued chimpanzees. Many are former pets and were rescued from poachers. The team films their fascinating behavior, family life, and conflicts In Abu Dhabi, a group of conservationists is reviving the population of a species once listed as extinct in the wild. The Arabian oryx was once a favorite of trophy hunters which is why their population dwindled in the 1980s. But because of a project to save their kind, their numbers are returning. But another challenge faces the oryx as urban development continues to wipe out the wilderness they once called home.
