Kangaroo Dundee & Other Animals - Part One

Episode 7 of 10

Wildlife documentary. An Australian living in the desert outback rescues orphaned baby kangaroos and raises them in his one-bedroom tin shack.

Brolga is a tough Australian who lives in the desert outback with a mob of orphaned kangaroos. He rescues joeys from the roadside when their mothers are killed and nurses them back to health. Now he is sharing his one-room tin shack with three joeys he hopes to return to the wild. But with desert fires and marauding wild dogs, will they make it?
