Securing a shared future for wildlife and people Watch the Video
Taronga’s Australian Fauna keepers were very saddened by the passing of Sheila, our female Eastern Long-beaked Echidna, last week.
Today is International Tiger Day – a day to not only celebrate this beautiful species, but also show you just how much wild tigers need your help!
Project Yellow bellied Glider 2015 will be in full swing this Tuesday and Wednesday when 160 Central Coast students descend on Taronga Zoo.
Although the weather of late has been a little cold and rainy, it has not deterred our Chimpanzees from doing what they do best.
