DESCRIPTION:
(from Animal Planet's press release, June 2017) Animal Planet announces today the greenlight of a second season of its popular series THE ZOO which begins production this month on location from the Wildlife Conservation Society's Bronx Zoo in New York. The series, which is the first to go behind the scenes at the world-famous zoo, focuses on the powerful and compelling stories of animals and their keepers, and the zoo's mission to conserve wildlife around the globe. THE ZOO also features the people who work at the zoo and how their expertise and varied skills come together to provide the highest quality care for the animals. THE ZOO will return to Animal Planet in early 2018. During the first season of THE ZOO, stories included zookeepers and veterinarians helping Ntondo, a silverback gorilla diagnosed with glaucoma; two keeper-raised Malayan tiger cubs preparing to be introduced to their exhibit; and the hatching of a little blue penguin, the first of her species to be hatched at the Bronx Zoo. Viewers followed the Bronx Zoo's staff as they journeyed to East Africa to reintroduce 1000 extinct-in-the-wild spray toads to the Kihansi Gorge; performed a root canal on a snow leopard that was rescued as a cub from a remote region in Pakistan; and the history of the Bronx Zoo's efforts to save the American bison from extinction.
