Sex in the Wild: Kangaroos
About This Episode
Veterinary scientist Mark Evans and anatomist Dr. Joy S. Reidenberg chronicle the birth of a kangaroo joey and its development. Sex in the Wild: Kangaroos also explores koala conservation efforts in Brisbane that use artificial insemination to boost the numbers of koala babies. Reidenberg visits a pioneering breeding program at the University of Adelaide to learn more about preservation efforts to save the extremely endangered southern brush-tailed rock-wallaby in South Australia.
Sex in the Wild takes viewers from the Okavango Delta in Botswana to the Australian Outback, and from a Borneo rainforest to the waters of New Zealand, to study animal reproduction in vivid detail.
