Over 5 months, Christina Choate drove over 30,000 km all around Australia to visit some of the most spectacular places in the world.

In this 6-part documentary series, she shares her adventures with Australian wildlife and how they evolved. She also shares stories of conservation and the future.

In this episode, she takes a serious look at roadkill in Tasmania where they have the highest statistics for roadkill in the country. She talks to Peter McGlore from Tasmanian Conservation Trust about the threat to Tasmanian devils and steps that people can take to minimise roadkill.

Science and technology is as much a part of our cultural fabric as art, music, theatre and literature. They play a significant role in our daily lives, yet, in a world dependent on science, we often take them for granted. Australia’s Science Channel believes every citizen has a right, and a responsibility, to be informed, and our mission is to create programs to bring that about.
