Strategic Plan 2010-2015
With 1.7 million visitors annually, consisting of local, interstate and international guests, Taronga might be seen predominantly as two zoos, caring for collections of native and exotic animals. However, it is so much more. In essence, the four main areas of our work cover:
- Research projects for the conservation and management of species;
- Breeding programs for the preservation of threatened species;
- Education, awareness and behaviour change to support species conservation and habitat preservation;
- Presentation of animals for environmental education and recreation purposes.
This strategic plan defines the long-term goal of the organisation (the vision), the unique role Taronga plays in the world of conservation (our role) and the way we will conduct our work (our values).
Taronga has extended its commitment to Indigenous Australians by developing a Reconciliation Action Plan which can be downloaded here. Taronga recognises the rich contribution Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures make to the diversity of the Australian community. We are committed to advancing reconciliation and ensuring the First Peoples of this nation are valued for their continuing care for Country, as well as conserving Australian wildlife over thousands of generations.
The RAP is a very practical way to consolidate our vision: Securing a shared future for wildlife and people, and it sets bold goals for us to work towards in the coming years as we continue to embrace, respect, provide opportunities and celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures across everything we do.
The RAP, launched in Sydney on May 23 and in Dubbo on June 1, coinciding with National Reconciliation Week, marks an exciting phase in the relationships between Taronga and it's local Indigenous communities.
