The bond between mothers and their children in the animal kingdom

Happy Mother's Day to all the amazing moms out there! Today we celebrate mothers in all walks of life, from the human world to the animal kingdom, and CGTN Nature's film crew recently captured some loving mothers in the animal kingdom. 

From wild Asian elephants roaming in the rain forest in southwest China's Yunnan Province to macaques living on the urban edge of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, and Chinese mergansers in Changbai Mountain in northeast China, moms all show a strong bond and deep love for their kids.
