A world without animals is hardly conceivable, but the natural habitats are shrinking fast, especially in Australia. But there are people who are passionate about their homeland's wildlife and dedicated to active species conservation.

By visting animal sanctuaries, we portray the remarkable stories of compassion and dedication as well es the active research of scientists fighting against the destruction of natural habitats. We meet koalas, kangaroos, wombats, and even the endangered Tasmanian devils, and follow them through their rescue, rehabilitation, and release into the wild. We get up close and personal with the day-to-day work of animal conservationists who try to give endagered animals a better future.
