Securing a shared future for wildlife and people Watch the Video ▶
The past month has been a busy one for Taronga’s chimpanzee community, with two of our younger chimps celebrating birthdays.
They arrived at Taronga Wildlife Hospital separately, but two Little Penguins are preparing to return to the wild together this week.
Taronga Zoo has recently received 12 female Squirrel Monkeys from a Zoo in France.
Keepers carried out a full census of Taronga’s feathertail glider collection last month and were delighted to see our successful breeding colony is going strong!
This week will see a fur seal invasion of Taronga’s Great Southern Oceans’ Seal Cove exhibit!
We’ve been breeding a number of baby Spiny Leaf Insects at Backyard to Bush. Interestingly, these little creatures are not classified as true leaf insects; they are a species of stick insect, otherwise known as phasmids.
When we last checked in with our Andean Condor chick, she weighed 3600 grams at just under two months. Now after three months, she is an incredible 6280 grams!
The final chick for Taronga Zoo’s 2013-2014 Little Penguin breeding season is in our crèche learning to hand feed, making a total of 20 for the season!
We are very saddened by the passing of Casey the Leopard Seal.
Staff at Taronga Western Plains Zoo’s Wildlife Hospital watched in delight recently as seven Eastern Long-necked Turtle hatchlings emerged from their eggs.
