Black bear cubs are often orphaned when their mothers are struck by vehicles or killed by hunters. To the rescue, literally, comes Angelika and Peter Langen, the proprietors of Northern Lights Wildlife Shelter in British Columbia, the world's only licensed grizzly bear rehab facility. As shown in this reality series, the Langens care for at-risk black bear cubs to prepare them for a second chance at life in the wild. Together with their son Michael, daughter Tanja, son-in-law Shawn, and a few dedicated volunteers, the Langens work to save and care for sick, starving, and injured orphan cubs.

Making a lucrative living certainly isn't a motivating factor for wildlife caregivers. It's a profession that appeals to those with a strong will, a big heart, and a love of wild animals. 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.
