3. Working With and Helping Animals

The eight segments in this program include: Rosie the Seal - Rosie, an Australian fur seal, lives at the zoo. She got sick in the wild, so the zoo made her better and took her back to ocean home. But she took a liking to people on the beach, following them home and sleeping in their tents! Now she is back at the zoo - happy to be among humans. Wandering Panda - Dolly, the Nepalese Red Panda, has gotten herself into a tough spot. She climbed too high and got stuck. The keepers rescue her, and trim her tree to make her enclosure safer. Sunglasses for Luke - When Luke, the tapir's, eyes become sensitive to the sun, the vet thinks sunglasses would solve the problem. But you can't put sunglasses on a tapir, so his keeper works out a cunning plan to get Luke's eyes better. Live Cargo - Animals often have to be moved - inside the zoo, between zoos, and even across the globe! The greatest care is taken so the animals are comfortable during these journeys - whether they are giraffes, or baby chameleons. Flying Penguins - Eight Fairy Penguins are moving to the USA. The carpenters at the zoo make special crates to keep them safe during the trip, and the keepers make sure they are comfortable for the long journey ahead. A Very Friendly Parrot - An eclectic parrot was found flying around a busy city street - so he came to live at the zoo. Keeper Ian discovers he's partial to a nibble of ear! Baby Face - It's springtime at the zoo and there are baby animals everywhere! Buffalo Baby - There's a brand new Dwarf Buffalo at the zoo - baby Lulu. We watch as Lulu is introduced to her dad for the first time. She has great fun running and playing, before settling down for an afternoon snooze. 02/09DE PI 15 min.
