Planet Earth: Incredible Families

Every animal on this planet has the drive to raise their young. This final special showcases the most breathtaking and touching courtships, birthing and parenting behaviors: a polar bear mother and her cubs, pink river dolphins and their mating dance, the famous courtship dances of the birds of paradise, and forest elephant families. Some of the stories are heartbreaking, too: the snow geese whose chicks are snatched by an Arctic fox. Others stories are uplifting and celebratory: the polar bear mother leading her tiny cubs out of the den. Plus, the long-term commitments animals — from snow geese to elephants — make.
