American veterinarian Dr. Amanda Salb divides her time between the Vwaza Marsh, the reserves of Lilongwe Wildlife Centre and the Malawi roads connecting the two in her ongoing mission to protect the small nation's diverse wildlife. Follow her as she treats an injured baby elephant before experiencing some distress of her own when she gets a flat tire just 200 yards from an angry herd. Then watch as she helps an orphaned yellow baboon with his new foster mom before taking a seven-hour ride to give a young antelope a chance at freedom.
Wildlife vet Dr. Amanda Salb has her hands full—sometimes literally—during her ongoing mission to rescue and rehabilitate the injured and orphaned animals of Malawi. In this episode, she and her team grapple with a 12-foot African rock python during an exam at the rescue center. Then, she heads south to Liwonde National Park, where she attempts to fit a radio collar on a wild cheetah. Meanwhile, back in Orphan Care, there’s quite a bit of monkey madness, from a very needy baby vervet to Kezi, the foster mom baboon, who has gone rogue.
There's plenty of excitement at Lilongwe Wildlife Centre as the team, led by American vet Dr. Amanda Salb, prepares to release two of their long-term residents: a pair of servals named Savannah and Bolt. Unfortunately, Bolt lives up to his name and escapes his enclosure, putting the whole mission in jeopardy. Things go much better for a giant eagle owl, who's ready to fly to freedom after several months of intensive rehabilitation. Meanwhile, in Orphan Care, the team races to save a baby vervet monkey and find a foster mom to take him in.
In the heart of Malawi's capital city, the Lilongwe Wildlife Centre rescues up to a hundred animals every year. Some are victims of poachers and the illegal pet trade, while others need saving from other creatures of wild Africa. In this episode, Dr. Amanda Salb attempts to treat a waterbuck caught by a poacher's snare but struggles to find the animal once it has been darted. Back at the center, Head of Animal Care Alma Van Dorenmalen needs to get inventive to help her favorite resident, Usiku, a spotted hyena, ward off a swarm of biting flies.
The work of the Lilongwe Wildlife Centre involves creatures of all sizes and often extends far beyond the boundaries of Malawi's capital city. In this episode, release manager Mandy Harwood heads to Vwaza Marsh, where her efforts to put a tracking collar on a bull elephant turn potentially lethal. Meanwhile, at the center, Dr. Amanda Salb and visiting British vet Dr. Sophie Widdowson pull out all the stops to give a vervet monkey with a broken leg a chance at being released back into the wild.
Caring for Malawi's wide variety of wildlife often requires cunning, patience, and the ability to shift gears at a moment's notice. American vet Dr. Amanda Salb puts all three attributes into practice when her mission to track down and treat an injured hyena is interrupted by a greater emergency: a lion has left his home in Nyika National Park and his footprints were discovered less than 200 feet from a school. While that drama plays out, it's all-hands on deck at the Lilongwe Wildlife Centre for the final vervet monkey release of the year.
