Part 1 of 2. The Season 34 premiere focuses on the work of human caretakers of orphaned baby animals. At Australia's Cape Otway Conservation Centre, the staff cares for a baby koala found along a road. It's weak and underweight, and should be spending its first six months inside its mother's pouch; the staff gives it a teddy bear to hold for comfort. At a sanctuary in Costa Rica, meanwhile, primatologist Sam Trull cares for six baby orphan sloths, including one that has pneumonia.

Conclusion. The work of human caretakers of orphaned baby animals is spotlighted. In Australia, Bev Brown nurtures fruit bat orphans by wrapping them in blankets and bottle-feeding them milk; and Stella Reid cares for 20 kangaroos at her compound, including one that needs to learn how to interact with other 'roos before it can be released into the wild. And in Costa Rica, primatologist Sam Trull prepares a two-toed female sloth for life in the rain forest by teaching it to climb and swim.

David Attenborough examines what led some birds, such as the ostrich, emu, rhea, cassowary and kiwi, to evolve as they did. The five belong to the ratite group of birds, and rely on traits other than flight to survive. For example, the ostrich-the largest bird in the world-can run upwards of 40mph, which is faster than most predators on the African plains; the cassowary, native to northern Australia, possesses dagger-sharp claws; and New Zealand's kiwi only comes out after dusk.
