Christmas enrichment at Taronga Western Plains Zoo
Keepers at Taronga Western Plains Zoo have been busy spreading some early Christmas cheer amongst the animals.
Taronga Zoo is celebrating the birth of its first-ever Bilby joeys. The births cap off an exciting year that saw The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge officially open the Zoo’s new Bilby exhibit named in honour of their son, Prince George.
Taronga is open every day of the year, including Christmas, Boxing Day and New Years Day, making the Zoo one of the few places open during the entire holiday season.
A Little Penguin from the famous colony at Manly was released back into the wild today after being treated at the Taronga Wildlife Hospital for wounds probably caused by marine debris.
Sydneysiders can now experience Taronga Zoo’s amazing wildlife and harbour views from an entirely new perspective, with the opening of the new treetop high ropes adventure, Wild Ropes.
Elephant facility nearing completion
Taronga Western Plains Zoo’s new state-of-the-art Elephant facility is having the finishing touches added, with completion set for the end of this year.
Christmas came early today for Taronga Zoo’s Chimpanzees, who discovered some gift-wrapped food treats and other tasty decorations in their exhibit.
Taronga’s successful Little Penguin breeding program has had 8 penguin chicks hatch this season.
Taronga’s Sumatran Tiger, Satu, has moved to Australia Zoo in Queensland this week, as part of the conservation breeding program for his critically endangered species.
