Alaska is a place that is known for its harsh beauty. Glaciers give way to winding coils of rivers and streams that feed into pristine lakes. Winters in the Arctic Circle can be harsh and unforgiving, but the summer brings with it some very surprising heat waves. The landscape is harsh, but it is home to an incredible range of wildlife. The series explores the seasons -- spring, summer, and winter -- and the way that they force the wildlife to adapt and thrive. Such animals to be seen are polar bears taking their first steps on the new ice of the season, a sea otter mother and its baby, and grizzly bears rushing to gorge themselves to fatten up.

In rural western Kentucky, the dedicated individuals featured in "Wild Bandits" rescue, rehabilitate and release injured, sick, and orphaned wild animals. State-licensed volunteers like Kristin Allen, who works for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife, answer emergency calls day and night, and coordinate with other rehabbers to provide the best care for each species. Despite the constant sacrifice of time, money and sleep, these caregivers make sure the animals come first -- with the ultimate goal of one day returning them back to the wild.
