Part 1 of 2. The Season 34 premiere focuses on the work of human caretakers of orphaned baby animals. At Australia's Cape Otway Conservation Centre, the staff cares for a baby koala found along a road.

Over the past few years, great strides have been made in understanding how to rescue and rehabilitate orphaned wildlife.


BIG BIRDS CAN'T FLY

EPISODE 3

STORYLINE
It may seem strange that among the more than 10,000 bird species in the world today is a group that literally cannot fly or sing, and whose wings are more fluff than feather. These are the ratites: the ostrich, emu, rhea, kiwi and cassowary. How and why these birds abandoned flight has puzzled scientists since Darwin’s time, but DNA and dedicated research are helping to solve these mysteries.


SOUL OF THE ELEPHANT

EPISODE 4
