Taronga has been advised that the keeper injured earlier today at the elephant barn remains in a critical but stable condition in Royal North Shore Hospital.

An expert Working Group involving the NSW Ministry of Health and Taronga Zoo met last week to further review the results of screening of staff and zoo animals following the discovery of a chimp with Tuberculosis (TB) last September. They confirmed that tests on over a hundred zoo staff and 160 animals have not identified any people or animals with active TB.
