We had a delightful sight on the morning of Tuesday 14 May 2013, when we arrived at work to find a little male White Rhino calf in the night yards with his mother Mopani. It was clear the calf was only hours old as he was still a little wobbly on his feet.
This week is National Volunteer Week, 13 - 19 May 2013 and Taronga Western Plains Zoo celebrated today with a special barbecue to say thank you to the many volunteers at the Zoo who provide countless hours of time and service every year.
Keepers at Taronga Western Plains Zoo are delighted by the arrival of four Eland calves over the past month. The calves have been born to a mixture of first time and experienced mothers which are all showing great nurturing skills.
