Plot Synopsis

THE ZOO: SAN DIEGO is a one-hour docuseries that takes a behind-the-scenes look at San Diego Zoo Global, whose mission is to save species worldwide while inspiring passion for animals and nature. Featuring two parks, the San Diego Zoo and the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, as well as the San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research, San Diego Zoo Global is home to more than 700 species and 6,500 animals. This series introduces audiences to a wide range of animals, including pandas, giraffes, Galapagos tortoises, koalas, elephants, mountain lions, two baby cheetahs that are learning how to be ambassadors for their species and a flock of ostriches known as the "Spice Girls." Viewers watch as California condors are brought back from the brink of extinction, and get an up-close look as Joanne the gorilla celebrates her fifth birthday along with her troop. The series also follows the animal care teams -- keepers and veterinarians at both the Zoo and the Safari Park -- many of whom have dedicated their lives to caring for animals, and the numerous projects and initiatives that place this nonprofit organization at the forefront of wildlife conservation. THE ZOO: SAN DIEGO premiered on Saturday, August 10, 2019 from 8-10pm ET/PT on Animal Planet, with back-to-back new episodes:

"Welcome to Our World" (8pm): A baby klipspringer is born on one of the coldest nights of the season and is miraculously nursed back to health; the California condor team at the Safari Park goes to unbelievable lengths to save this highly endangered species.
