Episode 1: This Wild Life
Sujatha, from India, becomes a volunteer at an animal rescue farm. She gets to know the other volunteers, while learning how to care for Australian animals that have been injured or orphaned.

Along the way she gets to cuddle kangaroos and emus, and help rescue a koala.

Sujatha also learns that hard work, dedication and love for animals are at the heart of the volunteers' work. And the reward comes when injured animals are able to return to the wild.
