In the city that never sleeps, there’s one place in particular that’s always non-stop: the world-renowned Bronx Zoo.

Now, for the first time, the zoo is allowing the remarkable stories that unfold there to be captured in order to show just what a critical role it plays in conservation throughout the world.

Filmed over an eight-month period, the series goes behind the scenes to reveal the inner workings of this incredible place. Located 10 miles from Times Square in Manhattan, the Bronx Zoo spans approximately 265 acres and features more than 6,000 animals and a dedicated staff of more than 500 people. The series covers an array of cases and animals including: a silverback gorilla with glaucoma, two keeper-raised Malayan tiger cubs preparing for their introduction to their exhibit at Tiger Mountain, and the rescue of an orphaned snow leopard cub from a remote region in Pakistan.

Catch up with The Bronx Zoo Sundays at 6pm!
