24 Hours in a Zoo

Cook, Lan

A lively comic strip exploring the work that goes on behind the scenes in a zoo.

Tai is mad about animals and dreams of becoming a zookeeper when he grows up. Today is his chance to access all areas and explore what goes on behind the scenes at a zoo for the day.

In this story you’ll discover what it’s like to handle a giant snake, how the zoo prepares for the arrival of a new animal and what happens when an animal goes missing. See some cutting-edge science in action, and find out how zoos work to protect endangered species, and what they do with all that dung.
