Social Learning

Taronga is committed to developing experiences that connect our visitors to wildlife, develop a deep understanding of the issues that they face and inspire and empower action to conserve wildlife and habitats. Understanding how a visit to Taronga or Taronga Western Plains Zoos can affect the attitudes and behaviours of visitors is a critical element in delivering our vision and improving the visitor experience.

We have strong collaborations with psychology researchers and are part of a team of Australian zoos seeking to understand the impact of experiences they provide on visitors, to constantly improve design of their programs and maximise the likelihood of impacting on visitors' attitudes and behaviours.
