Secrets Of The Zoo Down Under

Series 1 was named Factual Entertainment Program Of The Year at the 2020 TBI Content Innovation Global Awards. Series 3 is currently airing.

Secrets Of The Zoo Down Under is the latest edition to Nat Geo Wild’s popular Secrets Of The Zoo franchise.

This brand-new character driven documentary series gives viewers a ‘behind the scenes’ look at just what it takes to run one of the world’s most famous and magnificent zoos – Taronga Zoo.

For the keepers and vets that care for the more than 5000 animals at the park, this is no 9-5 job! In fact, for most of them, it’s a second home.

In this entertaining and compelling series, no area of the park’s 52 acres – set on the spectacular Sydney Harbour – is off limits.  

Millions of visitors – from Australia and around the world – pass through the zoo’s gates every year to get a glimpse of some of the most amazing creatures on the planet. But what they don’t see is the incredible and ground-breaking work that goes on behind the animal exhibits. Until now! And there are plenty of stories to tell. 

The series has also aired on Channel 4 in the UK and TVNZ in New Zealand, both under the title of Inside Taronga Zoo.
