Boral Youth At The Zoo (YATZ) is a fun, educational program for 13 - 19 year olds, held at Taronga Zoo and Taronga Western Plains Zoo.

Teens participate in a variety of activities both inside and outside of the Zoos,  throughout all school holidays and occasionally during the school term. Participants get the opportunity to learn about many aspects of our Zoos, while the Zoos benefit from having access to a group of young people with energy, motivation and a genuine interest in animals. 

Membership Includes:

  • Involvement in a range of activities during school holidays (and occasionally in school term)
  • The opportunity to work with zoo staff, including keepers
  • 12 months free entry to Taronga Zoo and Taronga Western Plains Zoos 
  • YATZ uniform and ID badge 
  • Magazines and newsletters 
  • Invitations to VIP events and presentations
