Pandemic Closures

The new season opens with Terri delivering the much-anticipated news that Australia Zoo will finally reopen after being closed for 78 days due to COVID-19. The effects of the closure are felt around the zoo, and the family must dig deep and come together for the sake of the zoo and Steve's dream.

Bindi and Chandler are Expecting

This season will also follow personal family milestones as newlyweds Bindi and Chandler prepare to welcome their own little Wildlife Warrior to the world. We'll follow along Bindi's pregnancy journey from announcement to welcoming the little one. Along the way we'll see Terri and Robert secretly trying to guess the sex of Bindi’s baby, while Bindi and Chandler have their own surprises up their sleeve.

Arrival of the Elephants
