Taronga has been involved in elephant conservation throughout its history and over time this has evolved to include breeding Asian Elephants at Taronga Zoo and also supporting a number of conservation programs in the wild across both African and Asia.

Taronga is home to 10 Asian Elephants and one African Elephant across both its Sydney and Dubbo locations.

All of our elephants vary in ages and we have specific programs designed to ensure they are of optimum health both physically and mentally.
