Rising From the Ashes of Australia's devastating and unprecedented bushfires, animal survivors begin their challenging journey back to a wild existence. Iconic species such as koalas, kangaroos, wombats and endangered species of parrots face a series of hurdles to recover from their trauma.
Follow their stories of rescue, rehabilitation and eventual release alongside the remarkable tales of human compassion and dedication - from an orphan wombat growing too attached to her caretaker, to audacious helicopter airdrops that feed remote rock wallabies. When the fires finally burn out, Australia looks to the science, innovation and Indigenous knowledge that will be needed to safeguard fragile wildlife in an even hotter future.
