About the Show

Outback Wildlife Rescue tells the incredible stories of everyday heroes, bound by a single mission: to save wildlife, anywhere, anytime. From the tropical Queensland coast, to monsoonal Darwin, to the red deserts of Alice Springs and beyond, the series showcases the rugged beauty of the Australian Outback and an amazing array of animals that call it home. In the heart of Darwin, The Ark Animal Hospital is refuge for the Top End’s injured wildlife. Whether scaled, feathered or furred, all are welcome. Beerwah in Queensland is home to Australia’s most extraordinary vet clinic. The Australian Wildlife Hospital is a non-stop, 24-hour, MASH-style emergency ward. Every day, manager Gail Gipp and senior vet Dr. Jon Hanger get calls to help a hundred or more animals, a quarter of which are koalas. However, the sad fact is that many do not survive - which makes every success story an important victory in the battle to save the koala species. Outback Wildlife Rescue features breathtaking scenery, colourful characters, dramatic rescues, thrilling crocodile patrols and heartfelt emotion as animals are saved and returned to the wild.
