Jim Breheny, Director of the Bronx Zoo and WCS Executive Vice President of Zoos and Aquarium said, “The Zoo highlights the role of how the Association of Zoos and Aquariums provide excellent care to individual animals and work to sustain species for the future. We are really happy to be sharing this series with the Animal Planet audience as the series emphasizes that today’s zoos must do more than exhibit animals; they must have a higher purpose and that purpose is conservation of species in the wild.”
The Zoo premieres Saturday, Feb. 18 at 10pm EST on Animal Planet. Watch a sneak peek of The Zoo here.
