S8E2: Macaw 911 | Secret Life of the Zoo

The Rothschild's giraffes are expecting a new addition as 12-year-old matriarch Dagmar, whose last calf died after a few days, goes into labour after a 15-month pregnancy. Orang-utan sisters Tuti and Siska, and their baby cousin Kesuma, rebuild their relationship after the trauma of the fire that engulfed their habitat in December 2018, while the keepers set off in pursuit when a blue-throated macaw goes on the run.
