The children of Benjamin Mi are actually significantly younger than in the film. At the time of purchase of the zoo, my brother and sister were respectively 6 and 4 years old.

The film was based on the memoirs of Benjamin Mee, published in 2009 under the title "We bought a zoo: Stunning authentic story of a broken zoo and 200 animals that changed the family forever." 20th Century Fox bought the rights to the screen version almost immediately after the book was released.

#FlashbackFriday Landscape architect Thomas Church, with Lawrence Halprin and architect George Rockrise, designed the Donnell Garden in Sonoma for the family of Dewey and Jean Donnell; today the garden is a Modernist icon and one of the best preserved examples of its time. The family chose as a location a favorite place on their cattle ranch for picnicking, a hillside overlooking the
northern extensions of San Francisco Bay. Completed in 1948, the garden was soon famous for its unusual, abstracted forms. Frequently photographed, it came to stand for a modern style of California living that took place both indoors and outdoors, with fluid transitions between these equally important places.
Designed at a time in which California’s economy was booming and its population rapidly
increasing, Church conceived a garden offering places to relax, entertain, swim, play, garden and barbeque.
At the Donnell garden, Church responded to the particular characteristics of site and client while exploring new forms. Of particular note was the biomorphic kidney-shaped pool; its Adaline Kent sculpture which functions both as a focal point and a tiny, inhabitable island; and the floating
deck, designed with a checkerboard of wooden boards that preserved existing trees while
extending the outdoor living space.

Having succumbed to a spontaneous desire, the family Mi on the last money buys an old abandoned zoo to save its inhabitants from extinction. From now on, the whole family will have to work hard to cope with this menagerie, restore the zoo and again make it available for visiting. Benjamin Mi and his children begin the battle for survival.
