Taronga is helping local African farmers to use the wild elephant’s natural fear of bees to protect crops. Hundreds of farms are affected by elephant crop raids which destroy farmer’s livelihoods, causing deaths and injury of both farmers and elephants.
There’s a very exciting mob of joeys at Taronga this school holidays.
Keen-eyed visitors should be able to spot a young Southern Hairy-nosed Wombat joey, Taronga’s first Tree Kangaroo joey born in over 20 years and three little Koala joeys.
Visitors to Taronga Zoo will soon be able to experience the Zoo’s amazing wildlife and spectacular harbour views from an entirely new perspective, with the addition of a treetop, high ropes adventure experience.
