In On Animals we hear three short stories which capture deep interactions between humans and other creatures. We spend some time at a wombat rehabilitation centre and meet the wombats themselves. We hear about how a tiny kangaroo joey helped heal a family and community after unimaginable loss, and we make the acquaintance of a very unusual bird for this part of the world – a southern giant petrel.

In this compilation, hear Lyn Obern read Mudsey’s rescue and happy ending, 
June LePla and Dodo’s Story
and Dorothy Henderson’s Why we don’t have Mondays anymore.
