Program: Nature #1705
Broadcast Date: Aug. 17, 2008

Eight-year-old Thomas was born with a rare genetic disorder, which resulted in a lot of trouble communicating with his parents. Now, Thomas undergoes dolphin therapy in the Florida Keys. His parents believe that the connection between Thomas and the dolphins is helping to unlock his silent world. Remarkably, Thomas is beginning to be able to communicate. "Wisdom of the Wild" illustrates some of the surprising ways in which animals help teach, heal, and strengthen people, in body, mind, and spirit.

"Wisdom of the Wild" is part of the 26th season of the Peabody and Emmy award-winning series produced by Thirteen/WNET New York for PBS. Major support provided by Canon U.S.A. Inc., Toyota, SC Johnson, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
