NATURE | Kangaroo Mob | Metropolitan Marsupials | PBS

Duration: 01:01
Program: Nature #2905

There are thousands of kangaroos living in the hills around Canberra. And as night falls, they start moving into the suburbs. Meet the mob of street-smart kangaroos moving into Australia's capital city and the ecologists who follow their every move. Over the course of one drought-stricken year, follow mob leader, Black Spot, and kangaroo mother, Madge, with her two young joeys — mischievous Sonny and tiny pouch-bound Alice. This is a look at what happens when human development encroaches on wildlife habitat and two very different species are forced to co-exist. "Kangaroo Mob" premieres on PBS Wednesday, January 11, 2012 at 8/7c (check local listings) and is part of the 30th season of the Peabody and Emmy award-winning series produced by Thirteen in association with WNET.ORG for PBS. Major support provided by Canon USA Inc. www.pbs.org
