Today Frala can be seen with the group’s young silverback, Kibali, who came to Taronga after a global search by Zoo curators and keepers for an outstanding male to lead the group after Taronga’s famous silverback, Kibabu, retired to Mogo Zoo.
Taronga’s Wedge-tailed Eagle ‘Gina’ is back in her cozy aviary after an extended experimental flight. For the past few days my team and I have been attempting to recover our female Wedge-tailed Eagle ‘Gina’ after she miscalculated during flight in an off-site training session.
For many of us, getting around is taken for granted. We start crawling, and then eventually start walking. Our level of skill increases with both time and experience, and even then some of us are more graceful than others.
