Queen of the Jungle Maria Tabraue’s Life Inside the Controversial Zoological Wildlife Foundation

If you are one of the millions of people that became obsessed with Tiger King  then you are going to be enthralled by today’s episode.  Our guest, Maria Tabraue, is the Co-President and Director of ZWF (Zoological Wildlife Foundation) in Miami , a sanctuary dedicated to educating the public about endangered animals in captivity and in the wild.

Rachel got a first hand look at the beautiful property and the animals that live there.  She chatted with Maria about what it’s like living at the zoo amongst the wildlife, their Instagram superstar, chimpanzee Limbani and what animals are still on her bucket list.

Maria didn’t hold back when discussing some of the zoo’s detractors.  She responds to the negative press by PETA, how ZWF is nothing like the zoo in Tiger King and what she really thinks of Carole Baskin.  No matter what your opinion, one thing is for sure, Maria is proud of ZWF and their mission.
