Is It Any Good?

This heartwarming reality series features men and women who commit extensive time, effort, and resources to come up with specific ways to help different animals. From creating a brace for an elephant in Botswana with a potentially fatal leg injury, to finding a mate for Ponso, a chimp who lives alone on an island off the Ivory Coast, it offers a chance to see the different ways people are helping animals that are facing potentially devastating circumstances.

The touching nature of the show's narratives is in line with the popular Dodo videos found online. They underscore how fulfilling the rescuers find the work, even if they aren't always successful. Meanwhile, many of the animals appear to understand that they are being helped, and find ways to show their appreciation. Watching Dodo Heroes is a fun, sentimental journey worth taking. Just be advised that even if you aren't a fervent animal lover, you still might shed a tear or two along the way.
