How do we solve a problem like street cats? It’s more complicated than you think. We venture into backyards and back streets to meet cats and kittens born in the wild and the people dedicating to improving the lives of their feline friends.
Sydney Harbour isn’t just pretty to look at—it’s home to more species of fish than you’d find along the entire coast of the United Kingdom. We go under the sea to learn more about our iconic harbour’s marine life and meet researchers who are working to increase its biodiversity.
Who you gonna call when a swarm of bees make themselves at home on a motorbike parked in the city centre? And just how do you go about getting yourself some backyard chickens? We meet a couple of creatures bringing the farm to the city.
Bats and Birds
What happens when a bat gets lost in a Sydney office block? And just how did the Ibis end up being everywhere in our city? We go up into the skies to meet the winged inhabitants who call it home day and night.
Are they just pets or part of your family? We hear how dog ownership has changed in Sydney over time and meet a couple of very important working dogs who make a difference in our city.
Coming soon - Tails of Sydney
You might not notice, but we share our city with a whole bunch of different creatures. Host Brooke Boney meets Sydney's animal inhabitants to explore the relationship between humans and animals - seen and unseen.
