TV Catch “Animal Mega Moves” at 8.30 tonight

So you think moving a house is difficult? Wait till you catch “Animal Mega Moves”, a new series that showcases animals being transported to safety. Poaching, disease and human encroachment are now part of an animal's life in Africa.

So, there is a desperate need to protect the continent's magnificent and diverse species and sometimes the only way to do this is to move them somewhere else.

But how do you move enormous mammals — elephants, rhinos, horses and sharks? This is where Game Capture comes in. These larger-than-life individuals work with the ultimate delivery deadline — their cargo must arrive on time, intact and alive.

Follow specialist teams of animal movers, vets and transport engineers as they attempt to relocate animals across the globe by air and road.

The series is on at 8.30 p.m. till February 24 on National Geographic Channel.
