The Jungle Doctor
The Adventures of an International Wildlife Vet
Explore the majestic, biodiverse world with Australia’s very own ‘jungle doctor’.
Fresh from veterinary school, passionate conservationist Dr Chloe Buiting headed for the frontline of Africa’s rhino-poaching crisis, going on to live and work in many other remote corners of the globe.
From catching wild giraffes by helicopter in Zimbabwe to meeting elephants with prosthetic legs in Asia, working with Maasai communities in Tanzania and tending to wildlife caught up in the bushfire crisis at home in Australia, Chloe’s compassion for animals in their natural habitat takes her into awe-inspiring locations – and hair-raising situations.
See what life is like in a job where no day is ever the same. Accompany Chloe on her journey into the fascinating world of conservation. And discover humanity’s deep connection with the animal kingdom, one adventure at a time.
