Animal Planet documents her single-minded dedication to care for creatures like bald eagles, owls, chinchillas, beavers, iguanas, ox, moose and bears.

Known to many TV viewers as the "Bondi Vet" for his work on that Australian series, Dr. Chris Brown is back for more adventures as he tries to improve the lives of animals that would otherwise have no one. This time he travels to some of the most remote and exotic places on the planet, working with a global network of animal advocates requesting his expertise to give care to an incredibly diverse range of species. From operating on endangered rhinos in Africa, saving sick wombats in Tasmania, freeing fur seals trapped in fishing line on Australia's Phillip Island, rescuing dogs from the meat trade in Southeast Asia, and helping orphaned sloths in Costa Rica, there is no animal too big or too small that Dr. Chris won't help.
