Taronga’s Wedge-tailed Eagle ‘Gina’ is back in her cozy aviary after an extended experimental flight. For the past few days my team and I have been attempting to recover our female Wedge-tailed Eagle ‘Gina’ after she miscalculated during flight in an off-site training session.
For many of us, getting around is taken for granted. We start crawling, and then eventually start walking. Our level of skill increases with both time and experience, and even then some of us are more graceful than others.
Over the past two weeks Taronga Western Plains Zoo’s school holiday program, Zoo Adventures was brimming with eager children keen to learn about animals and the environment, and to participate in some games and art and craft sessions.
A fire broke out in a service building on the perimeter of Taronga Zoo overnight.
Fire Brigade crews attended and extinguished the fire before 3am.
No people or animals were injured in the fire.
Preliminary investigations have found no suspicious circumstances.
