The Zoo

10 x 30"


The Zoo is back with more amazing animal adventures! From the arrival of Asian lion cubs to the birth of baby tapirs and baby sea-lions there's plenty of excitement in Dublin Zoo!

There are big changes ahead when a new bull elephant comes to town. This massive Indian elephant is hoping to lead the herd but first the zookeepers are going to have to introduce him to the females. Meanwhile there are more elephant adventures when Gerry travels high into the forested mountains of southern China to find the last wild sanctuary of China's Asian elephants.

We also travel to the rainforests of Borneo with zookeeper Brendan in search of critically endangered wild orang-utans in their natural habitat, while closer to home, the zookeepers travel into the Irish countryside to visit conservation projects protecting some of our own endangered animals.
