About the Show

The wondrous world of wildlife will be captured once again when Taronga: Who’s Who In The Zoo returns for its fabulous fourth season on Wednesday, November 22, at 7.30pm on Channel 9 and 9Now. 

This spectacular series will be voiced by new narrator, Australian actress, writer and director Virginia Gay, and centre on the antics of the unique residents at two of Australia’s renowned zoos: Taronga Zoo in Sydney and Taronga Western Plains Zoo in Dubbo. 

In this award-winning observational documentary series, the doors are once again reopened, offering extraordinary access to the amazing work of the keepers, vets, scientists, conservationists and support staff as they go through the ups and downs that come with running one of the world’s most famous zoos. 

Viewers will see that when it comes to caring for their animals, nothing is too much trouble for the keepers. From building a bachelor pad for a harassed squirrel monkey to safely teaching a fur seal pup to swim, it’s all in a day’s work. 

But there are times when it’s a full team effort. Giraffe Jimiyu requires the biggest team ever assembled of vets, nurses, keepers, specialists, and backyard crew to ensure he makes it through a dangerous general anaesthetic procedure. And with the vision of working to ensure a shared future for wildlife and people, we go into the field with Taronga’s conservationists and see the opening of the latest jewel in Taronga’s crown, an exclusive native animal habitat called Nura Diya Australia. 

The welfare of the wildlife remains front and centre in this entertaining, revealing and heartwarming new season of Australia’s captivating zoo life.
