Zoo Stories

40 x 45', (GER, 1 Ep ENG subs)
Have you ever wondered about life in a zoo? This animal documentary series takes a look behind the scenes.

The series accompanies zoo keepers and vets on their daily tasks. It also gives viewers a glimpse of the vocational world and everyday life of a zoo. Join us on our visit to the beautiful "Loro-Park" in Tenerife, home to more than 350 different parrot species, dolphins, gorillas, penguins and many more animals. This series acts as a backstage pass to life in a zoo.

Set with the beautiful backdrop of Lorno-park, which located in Tenerife, the different animals that are shown with their quirks and characteristics are the center of attention. The camera pans over them in their enclosures and zooms in on their life in the public eye. If they get inoculated or chipped, if the vet looks for illnesses or the keepers worry about fights among the animals inside of the home ranges – the viewer can watch it in this series. This documentary works like backstage passes to a concert - only better!

This park is the home of more than 350 different parrot species, dolphins, gorillas, penguins and many more exotic and also common animals. The German vets Heiner Müller and Dr. Kirstin Oberhäuser take care of several animals in the park. We joined them over the period of half a year and witnessed a lot of exciting and moving stories.
