Securing a shared future for wildlife and people Watch the Video ▶
This week, Taronga Zoo staff released over 1,100 critically endangered Southern Corroboree Frog eggs in Kosciuszko National Park as the snow fell over their natural subalpine habitat. The eggs, bred at Taronga Zoo and Zoos Victoria, were released into a variety of natural and artificial pools as well as disease-free enclosures as part of an ongoing recovery effort to bolster population numbers of this rare frog.
Getting regular veterinary check-ups is a normal part of life at Taronga Zoo. It ensures that all animals within the collection receive the best medical care, and are capable of living full, healthy lives.
The problems that the Kibale Fuel Wood Project is addressing are far more complex than I had imagined.

Recently keepers at Taronga Western Plains Zoo welcomed Tambo, a one year old male Bongo, to Dubbo from Taronga Zoo, Sydney. Tambo has come to Dubbo to join resident Bongo bachelor Kulungu, who is four years old, and has been at the Zoo since 2011.
Keepers are seeing a changing of the guard within the Meerkat group at Taronga Western Plains Zoo, as the 11 year old dominant female Umi starts to show her age.
Over the last 10 days 77 birds bred and reared at Taronga were released into Chiltern–Mount Pilot National Park in north-eastern Victoria to bolster the dwindling population of wild birds.
Keepers at Taronga’s Backyard to Bush would like to wish everyone a safe and happy Easter holidays!
