Jenny MacLean is the founder of a hospital for flying fox bats in the north of Australia, in Queensland. Every year, between November and January, all the flying foxes in the area are being infected by an unexplored disease.

This peculiar disease causes paralysis and results in the bats falling from their nests. Unfortunately, the disease is occurring during the birthing season. Therefore this leads to a chain reaction - if the mother dies, the offspring can't survive.

But fortunately, the bats in Queensland are being picked up and rescued by Jenny and her team of volunteers, who care for all suffering flying foxes and look after them until they have a chance of surviving on their own.
