Follow this group of specialized vets, whose work ranges from the transfer of 30 kiwis to the hand rearing of an abandoned lion cub, and from the release of a rare albatross to tracking down the world?s rarest sea lions. For these professionals there's no such thing as a typical day. In zoos and parks all over New Zealand these vets could be needed to ultrasound a pregnant rhino, repair a takahe?s damaged eye, take a chimp for a brain scan or operate on a penguin attacked by a shark. Wild vets travel all over New Zealand, saving and caring for native wildlife. As well as healing the animals, we also discover the deeper lessons of their work, gaining insight into the bonds that connect us to other species.
