TVNZ Family is delighted to bring New Zealanders a brand new family television series for people passionate about animals – Animal Academy. Hosted by Olympic Gold Medallist Sarah Ulmer and Willowbank Wildlife Park Head Ranger Jeremy Maguire, Animal Academy screens on TVNZ Family on TVNZ 6 on Sundays at 8pm.

Gonzo the pug joins Sarah Ulmer and Jeremy Maguire on this week’s episode of Animal Academy, as they meet Michael Beaumont, whose research aims to control animals that eat 20,000 tonnes of New Zealand greenery a night – possums. They pay a visit to Gwen James the Bichon Frise breeder; vet Deborah improves a kitten’s quality of life with a leg amputation; and Jeremy tries his hand at fly fishing.
