Monster & Africa

Patrick meets Monster, an orphaned sloth who must get through sloth boot camp before she can be released, and Lucy helps precious African cats learn how to hunt.

In Costa Rica, Patrick Aryee meets Monster, an orphaned sloth who was found by the roadside alone and scared. Carer Sam is putting her through a boot camp that she's designed, especially for sloths, to see if she has the skills to return to the wild.

In Zimbabwe, Lucy Cooke is meeting precious lion cubs Africa and Alika who have to learn how to hunt like wild lions. And Harriet the serval has to prove to carer Sarah that she's ready for a wilder existence.
