“Every day, the animal care professionals at AZA-accredited aquariums and zoos deliver expert care to the animals at their facilities. They also contribute tremendously to species conservation efforts, both locally and around the globe. With the help of Animal Planet and Facebook, it is exciting to be able to bring a live, inside look at what happens at zoos and aquariums to millions of people,” said Dan Ashe, President and CEO of AZA.
Throughout the Facebook Live, viewers will get sneak peeks of upcoming episodes of Animal Planet’s new series, THE ZOO, which takes audiences on a first-ever, in-depth look at the Bronx Zoo and its mission to save wildlife.
