It’s mid-summer in Dunedin, and the city’s wildlife rescuers are in a flap. Eight newly-hatched kākāpō chicks have landed at the Wildlife Hospital, requiring Dr Lisa’s expert care. Lizzie and Emily need to deal with a very angry Fiordland crested penguin (who they soon nickname ‘Purple Rage’). And nurse Gina can’t help but laugh at the antics of the naughty kākā foursome.
Out on the Otago Peninsula, the search for a mother sea lion and her pup goes to the dogs, literally, while a penguin researcher lives out her worst nightmare, and Purple Rage goes to rehab at Penguin Place.
