Chris Barnes has a large and unusual family. The Australian is `mum' to nearly 30 kangaroos that he cares for around the clock. That seems to explain his nickname, Brolga, which is an aboriginal word for stork. Brolga spends his days rescuing and raising orphaned joeys, some of which are so tiny and fragile that they require constant care. Brolga provides the marsupials with everything they need -- including food, love and even a makeshift pouch. He spends months preparing the animals so they can eventually be released into their natural habitat and live a more normal life.

Raised on the rugged plains of Australia, Matt Wright had plenty of jobs -- horse wrangler, Australian Army soldier, crocodile egg collector -- that helped develop his passion and skills for a career as a helicopter pilot and wildlife relocator. Featured in half-hour episodes of "Outback Wrangler," Wright tracks down, captures, and transports a diverse range of dangerous animals, including crocodiles, wild buffalo and even polar bears, that are posing a threat to people. As a chopper pilot he is able to access areas that would otherwise be impossible to reach. Matt's goal, he says, is based on the preservation of wildlife: to remove and relocate problem animals rather than kill them.
