We Move Animals is a heartwarming show that premiered on NAT GEO WILD in 2014. The show centers around the work of animal relocation experts who are responsible for transporting animals to their new homes, whether that be for conservation purposes or simply to improve their quality of life.

Each episode follows a team of experts as they undertake a new relocation project, from the initial planning stages all the way through to the final transport of the animal. Along the way, viewers are treated to a behind-the-scenes look at the work that goes into animal relocation, from carefully evaluating each animal's individual needs to building custom transport containers that ensure the safety and comfort of the animals during transit.

One of the most fascinating aspects of We Move Animals is the range of animals that the experts work with. Viewers will see everything from large mammals like elephants and giraffes to tiny lizards and exotic insects. The experts employ a range of techniques to ensure that each animal is transported safely and with a minimum of stress, from using gentle sedatives to carefully acclimating the animals to their transport containers over time.

Another key aspect of the show is its focus on conservation efforts. Many of the animals that the experts move are endangered or threatened species, and their relocation plays a crucial role in protecting these animals and ensuring their survival. Viewers will get an up-close look at the cutting-edge conservation techniques used by the experts, from using satellite tracking to monitor animal movements in the wild to developing breeding programs designed to boost the populations of endangered species.

But even when the animals being moved aren't endangered, the experts still take great care to ensure they receive the best possible care during transport. For example, when relocating a group of shelter dogs to new homes across the country, the team spends weeks working with each individual dog to make sure they are comfortable traveling in their transport crates and won't experience any undue stress during the journey.

Overall, We Move Animals is a fascinating look at the dedicated work of animal relocation experts, and how they are making a real difference in the lives of animals around the world. Whether you're an animal lover, a conservation enthusiast, or simply curious about the logistics of moving large and exotic creatures, this show is sure to captivate and inspire.

We Move Animals is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (3 episodes). The series first aired on January 18, 2014.
