[edit] Information

This documentary series explores the world's oldest zoo, bringing a unique insight into the rich variety of daily life for the staff and animals at London Zoo. For the first time since 2000 cameras have been given access all areas at the zoo in Regent's Park, and its 'country home' at Whipsnade, for a behind the scenes look at the life and death stories for The Zoo.

[edit] Feeding and Caring

The gorillas are key to the zoo's future, especially after the sudden death of Bobby, the silverback in 2009. The arrival of a new male, Yeboah, a young western lowland gorilla, brought new hope. He mated with two of the three females Effie, Zaire and Mjukuu. Mjukuu is now pregnant. If all goes well her baby will be the first the zoo has had for 22 years.

[edit] Breeding

Breeding animals in captivity is vital for conservation; to maintain endangered species and to the prosperity of London and Whipsnade Zoos. Without captive breeding there wouldn’t be any animals in zoos because unlike the old days animals are not selected from the wild and shipped into the zoo.

[edit] Conservation

Animal conservation is what really drives those who work for The Zoo. The zoo needs to be a success as a tourist attraction and a breeding station to support its international conservation programmes.
