The episodes “Realm of the Wombat” and “Desert of the Red Kangaroo” will air on February 15 at 9 and 10 p.m. EST/PST, respectively, while “Jurassic Jungle” and “Koala Forest” will be broadcast on February 16 at 9 and 10 p.m. EST/PST.

Wild Australia is produced for Nat Geo Wild by Doclights. Exec producing for the company is Susanne Lummer, while Ashley Hoppin is serving as executive producer for Nat Geo Wild.
