One determined man, a mob of baby kangaroo orphans and a story full of heart

Brolga's deep love and respect for animals went back to childhood, but for years he had led a nomadic life drifting from one job to the next never settling. This moment was a turning point. Brolga tenderly nursed the baby joey back to health and realised that if he could save one orphan then he could save another.

Over the years Brolga has watched how kangaroo mums care for their young. He now uses what he's learned to give these helpless creatures a second chance; feeding them, bathing them, doing everything a mother would.

Living simply in a one-room shack in Alice Springs, this tough, 6'7" Australian has dedicated his life to painstakingly caring for his kangaroo 'mob' before releasing them into the sanctuary he has created.

Here, Brolga describes life with the joeys and how through his care and love for them a lifelong bond is created. We meet Roger and Ella and the other kangaroos, and come to understand how this unique relationship between one man and these beloved animals not only saved their lives, but gave purpose to his own.
