DUBLIN ZOO’S TV SERIES ‘THE ZOO’, SUPPORTED BY EBS, PRESENT ‘The ZOO: A CHRISTMAS SPECIAL’

In this once-off festive episode of ‘The Zoo’ audiences will watch the drama unfold as the animals and keepers adapt to the cold and heavy snowfall that transforms Dublin Zoo into a winter wonderland. With temperatures dropping to a record low the zookeepers are getting to grips with the most severe winter of a generation.

Director of Dublin Zoo, Leo Oosterweghel, said, “We’re very excited about this episode of The Zoo, which shows how the animals survived the cold last Christmas. The animals from colder climates such as the snowy owls, Amur tigers, grey wolves and snow leopards all acclimatised easily to the extreme weather.

“The animal care team at Dublin Zoo faced major challenges and had to go to extra lengths to ensure all of the 600 exotic animals were comfortable during the freezing conditions.”

This hour long special of The Zoo TV series, supported by EBS, has all the drama, excitement and adventure fans have come to know and love and there’s also plenty of Christmas fun in this exciting one off special, featuring all your favourite keepers and animals and a whole lot more.

 ‘The Zoo: A Christmas Special’ is brought to you by Moondance Productions in association with Dublin Zoo and EBS and will air on RTE 1 at 6:30pm on the 28th of December.
