Malaria Storm

Produced by NHNZ

At Dunedin’s new Wildlife Hospital, the team have been thrown a curve ball! Some yellow-eyed penguins have tested positive for avian malaria, and what’s more terrifying is they’re not alone. The team must jump into action to prevent an all-out epidemic. But the penguins aren’t their only patients. At two months old, the kākā chicks have become quite the handful, and need a new home quickly! In the quarantine wing, the population of kākāpō chicks is steadily increasing, but four new-borns have developed a potentially deadly disease. Lisa and her team will have some long nights ahead of them to save these precious babies.
