As in season one of THE ZOO, we will share an unscripted look at the knowledge and diverse skills needed to operate a zoo. It will show the level of care given to the animals, the bond that exists between the animals and the staff who care for them, and how the higher purpose of zoos and aquariums is conservation of species in the wild.
