Animal Planet* and The Dodo, the #1 animal digital brand, have joined forces on a new series that explores the unique connection humans have with animals. Launching around the world on Saturday 9 June, Dodo Heroes shares inspiring stories of animals in dire need, and the people who go to unimaginable lengths to help them.
Proving that not all heroes wear capes, each episode highlights the undeniable bonds that are forged between these animals and the people who dedicate their lives to protecting and saving them. Dodo Heroes features the work of Pen Farthing, a former British Royal Marine who has reunited more than 700 street dogs with the soldiers who adopted them in Afghanistan; the Bee family from Australia whose mission is to rescue injured, sick or orphan baby koalas and rehabilitate them for the wild; Derrick Campana, a doctor who builds custom prosthetics for animals of all sizes from elephants to rabbits, and more.
These are the stories of true heroes and the animals they save.
