A former newspaper columnist and animal behavior specialist shares the story of his family’s move in 2006 to an unusual new home: a wildlife park in the English countryside, where a menagerie of Siberian tigers, African lions, brown bears and other animals awaited them. As they worked to refurbish the zoo, they also had to contend with a personal tragedy: the terminal illness of Mee’s wife, Katherine, to whom the zoo was dedicated when it reopened in 2007 as the Dartmoor Zoological Park.

Guests

  • Benjamin Mee a former newspaper columnist and owner of the Dartmoor Wildlife Park zoo.
