ITV1 documentary 'The Zoo' series 2
Training sealions, breeding endangered amphibians, and working with a diva penguin – it’s all in a day's work for staff at the Zoological Society of London (ZSL).
Following the huge success of the first series of The Zoo broadcast in 2010, ITV1 have returned to ZSL to once again give you a glimpse into life behind the scenes at the Society.
Staff at the Society, which runs ZSL London Zoo, Whipsnade Zoo, and undertakes science and conservation work in more than 50 countries, were followed by cameras for 6 months for the two hour-long episodes.
