Making a difference to wildlife and the planet

This beautifully filmed wildlife conservation series with exclusive access follows the vital work being undertaken by Auckland Zoo professionals as they rescue, rehabilitate, and protect endangered animals inside the Zoo and out into the stunning wilds of Aotearoa New Zealand.

Heart-warming and full of hope, each episode follows some of the Zoo’s 200 specialists and their work - from helping to care for one of the world’s rarest frogs and the only alpine parrot, to saving one of the largest insects on the planet. Our experts perform surgery on a rescued sea turtle and prepare for the upcoming births of a Bornean orangutan baby, a giraffe calf and a southern white rhinoceros calf.
