Australia’s favourite vet, Dr Harry Cooper, takes us on a revealing behind the scenes tour of Sydney’s Taronga Zoo in Sydney and Dubbo’s Western Plains Zoo in tonight’s premiere special, ZOO TALES.
ZOO TALES takes a behind the scenes look at two of the world’s most popular zoos, Taronga Zoo in Sydney and Western Plains Zoo in Dubbo, NSW. Between them they receive over one and a half million visitors each year. ZOO TALES gives you a rare glimpse behind the scenes where we can meet the people behind the animals and learn about everything from the zoos’ breeding and rehabilitation programs through to the effort which goes into training the animals for their daily shows.
Highlights include an Australian first when we view exclusive vision of the birth of snow leopards, Sabu and Kamala, at Taronga Zoo – a major achievement for the Zoo and it’s staff.
We also watch staff at Western Plains Zoo treat Moyo, a 10 month old cheetah cub – the fastest animal on earth – who may lose the ability to walk let alone run.
Plus, the baby white rhino that thinks it’s a goat! And penguin “boot camp”.
ZOO TALES is hosted by Dr Harry Cooper.
