For Taronga to be successful in its vision of securing a shared future for wildlife and people, our conservation work must not only benefit wildlife but it must also support people as well.
We all depend on the Earth’s resources for our daily lives. We fish or eat fish, we farm or eat produce from the supermarket, we log or use wood to build and we buy products everyday that use resources from the Earth. However, these resources are finite. If we harvest and use them in unsustainable ways, the resources we need will eventually run out.
The Conservation Partnerships that we create work with wildlife conservation organisations and communities to develop ways to protect priority species and habitats, facilitate ways that people can live and share environments with wildlife and foster community and government support for conservation. By focusing on developing close partnerships, we ensure that our contributions have long-term effects and outcomes for biodiversity.
