Nat Geo WILD is sorry to share the news that, along with our friends at Endemol Shine North America, we lost a dear member of our family yesterday. Dr. Scott Sims, star of our popular Aloha Vet series, passed away in his beloved Hawaii after a short battle with cancer.
Famous for answering calls day and night to care for his patients, he truly embodied the spirit of our network by always putting animals first, and for that he will be greatly missed. Our only consolation is that we got to share his incredible talent and humanity with the world, if just for one season.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends at this difficult time.
Thanks to all the WILD fans for your heartfelt outpouring of love for Dr Sims. We will truly miss him. We have heard from his family and friends in Hawaii, and they have started a foundation to support not just a cause dear to Dr Sims, but really something that represents his entire dedicated life to animals.
