Meet six baby animals from across the globe, in environments ranging from Africa to Sri Lanka to Iceland. Follow along as they experience joy and hardship, confront near-daily adversities, navigate their habitats, and overcome challenges in their first year of life. The most basic tools for survival must be learned in their first three months to thrive and ultimately survive.

Watch Animal Babies: First Year on Earth, tonight at 8pm on WGBH 2.
