Coming Soon:


  • The New Geography Syllabus in a Taronga Zoo context. We'll examine a new unit of work that explores Taronga's conservation programs through the 'lens' of People, Place and Issues in Australia and other countries.  This webinar is designed for teachers who are interested in guiding their class through such a unit. Our new unit will stand alone and also integrate the 2016 Taronga Centennary events and celebrations. Please stay tuned for this exciting development.
