Secrets Of The Zoo Season 2: Premiere Date, Cast, Recap, Update

‘Secrets Of The Zoo’ is a Nat Geo Wild show which chronicles the lives of different animals inside the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium in the United States. Here, the relationship between animals and their caretakers become the main focus of the show. We get behind-the-scenes knowledge about what actually happens in such a zoo and how they manage to look after soo many animals at once.

The show is produced by Spectrum Productions. Guy Nickerson and Elaine Pugliese are the executive producers for the production house whereas Ashley Hoppin is the executive producer for the channel.

Secrets Of The Zoo Cast: Who is in it?

The zoo itself is the main character of the show. There are around 10,000 animals in the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium and the place hosts around 2.4 million people every year. The zoo is very particular and concerned about not only their animals but the fauna and the natural resources all across the world. The lemur population on the island of Madagascar has been restored by the Colombus Zoo. They have also taken upon the job of rehabilitation of manatees and then releasing them in Florida. The coral reefs in the Atlantic Ocean are also being saved by the zoo.

The zoo takes up a huge area of land, almost around 588 acres. It also has a conservation area where animals can thrive in their natural habitat. This 10,000-acre land is called The Wilds. There are around 500 species of endangered animals in The Wilds.

The other main characters of the show are undoubtedly the animals. There is a bonobo with a heart condition. She is being treated by a specialist for human cardiac diseases since the hearts of humans and bonobos are strikingly similar. The arrival of two small cheetah cubs sparks huge interest in the dogs who are kept as companions for cheetahs. We also see the staff at the zoo fear for the life of an aging Arctic fox called Anana who is refusing to eat any longer.

Secrets Of The Zoo Plot: What is it about?

‘Secrets Of The Zoo’ is, in its essence, about a zoo where every member of the staff is an extremely dedicated worker trying to make the lives of animals better in whichever way possible. The animals are certainly the most interesting feature of the show, but the passionate work and dedication put in by the employees of the zoo is truly remarkable and can also make you emotional at times. The series is about the spiritual connection between humans and animals, and that is what makes it truly unique.

The times when an orphan gorilla is given care and shelter in the zoo, when the staff become very concerned about a flamingo which has lost its voice, when the keepers earnestly try to find out the reason behind the resurfacing of a disease in a cheetah are moments which show us how much these people care for these animals and how much their welfare means to them. What seems the most striking is how personally involved these people are with the animals. They tend to their every need, even going to The Wilds to look and care for a dog which is suffering from overheating and needs to be cooled down.

The Colombus Zoo also has unique methods for training animals. The best one seems the method they use for training cheetahs. Since they are natural runners, running is essential for them to stay in shape, and what the zookeepers have done is that they have a ball of string which is pulled all around the cheetah enclosure, and the cheetahs run around at top seed trying to catch the ball.

Secrets Of The Zoo Season 2 Release Date: When will it premiere?

‘Secrets Of The Zoo’ season 1 premiered on July 29, 2018. The show’s uniqueness prompted the network to renew the show immediately. The good news for all the animal lover out there is that ‘Secrets Of The Zoo’ season 2 premieres on Nat Geo Wild on June 2, 2019.

After the huge success of the first season, the second season brings to us more stories about the bonds between humans and animals. It can be presumed that if this success continues, the makers might come up with a new season next year. However, no such information is available as of now. We shall update this section as soon as some concrete news comes our way.
