Securing a shared future for wildlife and people Watch the Video
Researchers from Taronga and the University of NSW are looking for participants to take part in a focus group about visitor experiences at zoos.
Visitors may have noticed that a section of Taronga’s Chimpanzee exhibit has been closed to the public on certain days in January.
There are certain times of the year when the keepers get to have more fun than usual when creating enrichment items and one such time is Halloween.
A Long-nosed Bandicoot was recently discovered lurking in the gardens of Taronga’s Bird Show.
In 1916 Taronga Zoo opened its doors on Sydney’s North Shore and in 2016 we celebrated a century of wildlife commitment in style.

Update on three year old White Rhino Macheo
Taronga Zoo advises that an item sold during the recent Vivid festival at the Zoo poses a potential hazard if broken apart.
As part of a 10 year Centenary Master Plan upgrade, Taronga has submitted plans to build an Australian Habitat Exhibit (phase 1) which includes an overnight conservation experience called the Taronga Wildlife Retreat.
Taronga Zoo would not dissect animals for public display. Taronga’s first concern is always for the welfare and dignity of the remarkable animals in our care.
