A Growing Passion

Distant Roots and Tasty Shoots: Plants At The Zoo

Season 5 Episode 2 | 26m 46s

We stroll through the zoo with some of the staff who point out plants they harvest on-site, then we go off-site where they grow and harvest more. What there isn't room to grow on-site gets collected along highways and in neighborhoods around San Diego County. We visit reserved koalas on strict eucalyptus diets and tortoises that enjoy a range of fresh greens.
