About The Zoo
« THE ZOO Season 1, which debuted in Feb 2017, was a tremendous success – the highest rated new series on Animal Planet since 2015. Over one million weekly viewers watched as the Bronx Zoo shared an unscripted look at the knowledge and diverse skills needed to operate a zoo, generating awareness about the quality care the animals receive from dedicated staff.
The second season featured an all-new line-up of stories that included Dave, a red kangaroo who bounces back from arthritic symptoms after undergoing chryotherapy; breeding komodo dragons; keepers training bats, a golden eagle and Indian gharials; the head-starting of Eastern hellbenders; and how a keeper deals with retiring after 31 years of caring for Happy, Patty and Maxine, the Bronx Zoo’s three female Asian elephants.
Some of these stories were challenging, controversial, and emotional to tell. Throughout the season, viewers witnessed conservation in action as zoo staff successfully bred pink pigeons and gave hellbenders a “headstart.” They formed emotional bonds with the animal ambassadors, watching as they ate, played, and parented. They watched our highly trained animal care professionals provide compassionate veterinary care to a snow leopard cub born with developmental issues affecting its mobility and an elephant diagnosed with tuberculosis. They learned about Species Survival Plans, animal rescue, and the true dedication required to operate a zoo or aquarium. Each episode of THE ZOO demonstrates some of the remarkable successes our members have had in advancing animal are and conservation, and continues to provide insight and inspiration. » (https://www.aza.org/from-the-desk-of-dan-ashe/posts/the-zoo-tv-show)
