"The Zoo: San Diego" provides a behind the scenes look at the daily lives of various species of animals and the teams that care for them. 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. A wide range of animals are introduced, 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." Besides the animals, the keepers and veterinarians at both the Zoo and the Safari Park -- many of whom have dedicated their lives to caring for animals, discuss what it's like to be a part of this world-renowned zoo.
