Narrated by Jane Horrocks, Zoo Days is an entertaining wildlife series which follows the engaging characters, both animal and human, at two of Britain's largest zoos. With incredible behind-thescenes access at Chester and Colchester Zoos, the series features a variety of storylines and strong personalities, providing a mix of excitement, jeopardy and fun. Featuring close encounters with the scariest reptiles and cute baby monkeys, Zoo Days will reveal what happens in the everyday lives of the zoo keepers. As well as playing host to nearly two million visitors a year between them, both zoos are heavily committed to conservation and training. Chester Zoo – the biggest zoo in Britain – is building an intensive conservation program aimed at ensuring the survival of global animal species, while Colchester is the first ever UK zoo to have set up its own nature reserve in Africa, protecting endangered creatures in their natural habitat.
In Zoo Days today, Rafters the giraffe is hit by a life-threatening illness and his keeper is worried sick. And in the Chester Zoo reptile house, the vets get to grips with one of the world's largest snakes.
