The Wildcat documentary brings us a fascinating subject, Samantha Zwicker. A young scholar that dedicates her time to rescue animals in Peru. 

The Synopsis 

Suffering from depression and PTSD after a tour in Afghanistan, British Army veteran Harry Turner intends to take his own life in the Amazon rainforest far from his family and home. But once there, he meets Samantha Zwicker, an American scientist with a plan to return an orphaned ocelot to the wild for the first time. Falling in love with the kitten and Samantha, Harry agrees to act as surrogate parent to the ocelot, teaching him to hunt, defend himself, and, most importantly, become wild and leave Harry behind. While Samantha heals from her own traumatic past, Harry will have to wrestle with his internal demons if he and the cat are to survive.

Samantha Zwicker found emotional shelter in South America while dealing with childhood trauma. Now she  is a young gem that has dedicated her life to making a difference in tropical wildlife. Zwicker is a tropical biologist and wildlife rehabilitation specialist. Her knowledge from her diploma in nonprofit management facilitated the start of Hoja Nueva. A non-profit organization that helps protect animals in the Peruvian Amazon through rewilding programs, ecological research and applied conservation. Currently she is in the process of earning her doctorate in Quantitative Ecology at the University of Washington.
